Each year in the UK, about one in every 700 babies are born with either a cleft lip (a gap or split in the upper lip), a cleft palate (a gap in the roof of the mouth) or both of these. ... When the tissues that form the upper lip fail to join up in the middle of the face, a gap occurs in the lip. Usually, a single gap occurs below one or other nostril (unilateral cleft lip). Sometimes there are two gaps in the upper lip, each below a nostril (bilateral cleft lip).
Cleft lip and palate When the palate fails to join up, a gap is left in the roof of the mouth up into the nose. We don't know why the 'joining up' process fails in this way. Some evidence suggests there may be a genetic factor, as cleft lip and palate can run in families.

Like a lot of teens, Carly spends many of her after-school hours yakking on the phone. Unlike her friends, though, Carly doesn't take her gabbing time for granted - it's taken her years of hard work to develop her speech skills. She's also had numerous plastic surgeries and tons of dentist and orthodontist appointments - all before she turned 13! When Carly was a baby, she was born with a condition called cleft lip and palate. If you see her, you may notice the scar on her upper lip, but she's had to overcome more obstacles than just a different appearance. Keep reading to find out more about cleft lip and palate and some of the challenges teens who have had it face. What Are Cleft Lip and Palate?
Cleft lip and palate are birth defects that occur while a baby is developing in the uterus. During the 6th to 10th week of pregnancy, the bones and tissues of the baby's upper jaw, nose, and mouth normally fuse (close) together to form the roof of the mouth and the upper lip. If there isn't enough tissue in the developing mouth and the palate doesn't fuse together, a baby could be born with a partial (or incomplete) cleft palate or a complete cleft palate. Babies who are born with cleft lip have a gap or opening in the skin of the upper lip. In babies with cleft palate, there is an opening between the roof of the mouth and the nose. An incomplete cleft palate is when there is an opening in only the soft palate in the back of the roof of the mouth. A complete cleft palate occurs when the front part of the roof of the mouth - the hard palate - and the soft palate haven't fused together. In many cases, a baby born with a complete cleft palate also has a cleft lip.

Parents Medical Problems
Oral-facial clefts are birth defects in which the tissues of the mouth or lip don't form properly during fetal development. In the United States, clefts occur in 1 in 700 to 1,000 births, making it the fourth most common major birth defect. Clefts occur more often in children of Asian, Latino, or Native American descent. The good news is that both cleft lip and cleft palate are treatable birth defects. Most children born with either or both of these conditions can have reconstructive surgery while they're still infants to correct the defect and significantly improve facial appearance. An immediate problem after birth, however, is feeding , but special nipples and even prostheses are available to ensure that children with oral clefting receive adequate nutrition until surgical treatment is provided. For many parents, what's most difficult is handling the fact that their child is different. Many parents feel unreasonable guilt that somehow they caused the problem, as well as worry that their child will be teased because of his appearance or because he has trouble speaking. If your child has oral clefting, it's important that you inform yourself about the defect and seek support from both the medical community and other parents who have been through this experience. Support can help you focus on your child's potential, rather than on the cleft. The fact is, cleft treatments available today are excellent. And for those with more pronounced physical differences, plastic surgery can significantly improve specific problems that may be a concern for you and your child.

You are here: Home Page What is Cleft Lip and Palate? What is cleft lip and palate?
A cleft lip (CL) is a separation in the upper lip. A cleft palate (CP) is an opening in the roof of the mouth. Clefts result from incomplete development of the lip and/or palate in the early weeks of pregnancy . During this time the face is being formed - the top and the two sides develop at the same time and grow towards each other, finally fusing in the middle. The lip and primary palate develop at 4 to 6 weeks of gestation, while the secondary palate develops at approximately nine weeks. Clefts affect approximately 1 in every 700 babies in Ireland. [ SEE Incidence of clefts In the instance of a cleft forming, the final closing does not fuse properly and an opening remains. The cause or causes for this failure to close are as yet not clearly understood, although research has been and continues to be undertaken. Genetics and environmental factors are both considered instrumental in causing clefts. A submucous cleft palate is where, although the surface layers of the soft palate (mucous membrane) are complete, the underlying muscle is incomplete. A submucous cleft of the hard palate is where the bony element is incomplete. In its most minor form only the uvula is cleft, but even this leads to an abnormality in the muscles in the palate and, if the speech is affected, a repair will be required. Normal speech production is the primary goal of any surgical repair of a submucous cleft. A submucous cleft palate can prove difficult to identify, the palate appearing normal in some children. Special tests may be necessary to properly identify it. For more on submucous cleft palate, see the

Cleft Lip and Palate
Cleft lip and cleft palate are conditions which occur when tissues that usually form the lip or the roof of the mouth fail to grow together, creating a gap in the lip or a hole in the roof of the mouth. The reasons for this are not entirely known, but the condition is among the most common problems noted at birthit occurs once in every 1000 live births (the same frequency as club foot). A recent study(March 1996) indicates that smoking during pregnancy may double the risk that the child will be born with a cleft lip or palate. Since it occurs this frequently, almost everyone knows someone who has a cleft lip or cleft palate. The repaired cleft lip may be noticed in the adult as an uneven upper lip and a scar which runs from the nose down through the upper lip. Persons with a repaired cleft palate may have a nasal quality to their speech. This can occur because there is a shortage of tissue in the roof of the mouth after the repair in some cases and sounds can accidentally leak out the nose when certain words are spoken. In most cases following reconstructive surgery the patient can expect to live a normal life and the cleft condition should hopefully not stand in the way of any dreams or aspirations.
The cleft lip is usually repaired at about age 3 months. The cleft palate is usually fixed at about one year of age, though this may vary based on the size of the cleft itself. Usually the patients remain in the hospital for one or two nights and sutures in the lip are taken out in about 5 days. Sutures in the palate do not need to be taken out because they are made of a material which will dissolve.

If you're considering surgery to correct cleft lip or palate... In the early weeks of development, long before a child is born, the right and left sides of the lip and the roof of the mouth normally grow together. Occasionally, however, in about one of every 800 babies, those sections don't quite meet. A child born with a separation in the upper lip is said to have a cleft lip. A similar birth defect in the roof of the mouth, or palate, is called a cleft palate. Since the lip and the palate develop separately, it is possible for a child to have a cleft lip, a cleft palate, or variations of both. If your child was born with either or both of these conditions, your doctor will probably recommend surgery to repair it. Medical professionals have made great advances in treating children with clefts and can do a lot to help your child lead a normal, healthy, happy life. This information will give you a basic understanding of the operation when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on you individual circumstances. Please be sure to ask your surgeon if there is anything you don't understand about the procedure.
