Cleft Palate & Cleft Lip




Cleft palate and cleft lip - Better Health Channel - open

A cleft is a birth defect caused by the failure of the mouth parts to fuse or join up during early fetal development. The cause is unknown, although genetic factors play a role in a small proportion of cases. Surgery can repair most clefts so that appearance and speech develop normally.
