Background: HYDIS-TB is a contemporary distraction appliance used in large alveolar cleft defects. This appliance requires intraoral trimming at the docking site during approximation of the segments which cause entrapment of acrylic particles at the surgical site thereby hampering normal healing process. Solution: We employed commonly available putty material at distraction site in a cleft patient during intraoral acrylic trimming of the appliance. This shielded the surgical site from exogenous material, which facilitated proper healing.
