Abstract

Removable nasal obturators provide a treatment option for a range of patients presenting with velopharyngeal dysfunction without eliminating the possibility for future surgery, speech therapy, or the provision of other devices. The presented technique describes the fabrication of a 1-piece silicone nasal obturator to reduce hypernasality and nasal airflow errors without causing significant hyponasality. The obturator has minimal visibility and minimal risk of inhalation.
