Distraction osteogenesis is a reliable method for regeneration of bone deficiency, used in treatment velopharyngeal incompetence, and other craniofacial disorders. Extraoral and intraoral devices have been developed to aid in distraction of facial bones. Blood supply preservation, stable fixation and distraction of bones is key to its success. Further study and research need to be undertaken for implementation of distraction osteogenesis in clinical use for various craniofacial deformities.
