<div><p>Presurgical infant orthopedics (PSIO) is done to reduce the size of the cleft defect along with improving the arch alignment and nasolabial aesthetics in patients with cleft lip and palate, leading to an improvement of nasolabial aesthetics allowing for a tidier and more aesthetic reparative procedure and postsurgical scar. Since the 2000s, clear aligners have slowly and steadily treaded their way as an acceptable orthodontic modality, with their usage and acceptability increasing considerably over the past decade. Thus, from the knowledge gathered in its 10 years working with 3-dimensional (3-D) diagnosis, treatment planning, and 3-D Printing services, Compass 3D (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) developed the OrthoAligner NAM system. This case series highlights one of the world’s first documented cases of PSIO treated with a series of clear aligners.</p></div>
