Numerous babies are born around the world with Cleft Palate and Lip problem. This occurs very early in pregnancy and presents as a birth defect in babies with an opening in Roof of Mouth. The children with a cleft lip will most likely suffer from speech issues, difficulty in eating, hearing loss or dental problems. Also, they will become self-conscious over the physical deformity and hence it is better to opt for Cleft Lip and Palate Treatment for the cosmetic reasons as well. Your pediatrician would recommend a Palate Surgery as a corrective measure. But the Palate Surgery is one of the most complex surgeries involving a multidisciplinary team of doctors. Typically a plastic surgeon, an otolaryngologist (ENT specialist), an orthodontist and audiologist might be participating as per the requirement. And the surgery may be done in multiple phases. If diagnosed during the prenatal scan or immediately after delivery the first surgery can be carried out as early as three months. This is to ensure the facial structure develops without further complication. With further surgical interventions which can span over few years, the problem can be completely solved. Cleft Palate Speech Therapy has to be done under the supervision of speech therapist to overcome any difficulty in speaking or comprehending.
