Congenital large intraoral defects are amenable to prosthodontic rehabilitation as surgical procedure alone cannot restore the function of residual palatal tissues. This study presents the case report of a partially edentulous patient with congenital cleft palate (Veau's Class III). The procedure for fabrication of definitive velopharyngeal obturator attached to conventional removable partial denture is described.
