A cleft palate is a congenital malformation – meaning it happens early in the pregnancy. It’s not only cosmetic; it is also a functional issue. Clefting can include the lip and palate, or solely just the lip or simply the palate.

 

Team approach

 

Treatment includes many different disciplines of medicine. The team can consist of plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, speech pathologists, geneticists, and even a social worker.
