lip and palate
Cleft lip and palate are among the most common facial birth problems affecting approximately 1 in every 700 infants. (Fig. 2, 3, 4). Complete facial rehabilitation for a child with a cleft lip and palate generally involves more than the initial lip and palate repair. Comprehensive diagnosis, treatment planning, follow-up visits, and a staged reconstructive approach from infancy through adolescence are necessary components to achieve maximum success.
