Treatment for Cleft Lips and Cleft Palates
Cleft lips and palates cause several different types of complications for the infants born with these birth defects. In order to minimize the potentially significant lifelong effects, there are different treatment approaches, depending upon the level of affliction.


Complications of Cleft Lips and Cleft Palates
Cleft lips and cleft palates affect the tissue of the lips and palate (roof of the mouth) in varying degrees, resulting in complications that require treatments. Examples of these types of complications include:


• Difficulties nursing and bottle feeding because of a lack of ability to suck with a cleft lip or swallow effectively with a cleft palate.
• Increased rates of ear infections and even hearing loss due to the inability of the middle ear to properly drain fluids.
• Breathing difficulties when cleft lips and cleft palates pose serious structural deformities.
• Long-term speech problems as both a result of reduced hearing abilities and challenges to clearing speak effectively.
• Long-term dental problems with the gums and upper mandible are affected.


Treatments of Cleft Lips and Cleft Palates
Depending upon the specific location and severity of the cleft, the treatment options range from early surgical intervention to long term multiple surgical interventions, therapies, and orthodontic care. Generally speaking, a whole team of medical specialists may need to be involved with the treatment and care. These professionals include:


• Otolaryngologist/ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist)
• Plastic surgeon for cosmetic repairs
• Oral surgeon for corrections of the lip, jaw, and palate
• Speech pathologists to assist with short-term and long-term speech
• Audiologist to address hearing related issues
• Pediatric dentists and orthodontists to help correct gum and teeth issues
• Nutritionist to assist parents in making a plan for effective and healthy feeding options
• Psychologist and/or Social Worker to help the family address long-term emotional needs


All of these medical professionals need to come together to formulate a treatment plan. Specific types of treatment avenues include:


• Cleft lip surgical repair, usually most effective between the 3rd and 6th month of life
• Cleft palate surgical repair (palatoplasy), usually most effective between the 9th and 18th month of life. This procedure is used to close the gap of the palate and reconnect muscles as needed.
• A surgical repair to the gums, usually not done until pre-puberty years of 7-9
• Surgical repairs to the jaw as needed
• Pre-surgical stretching of skin and tissues, sometimes referred to as NAM (Nasoalveolar molding)


These types of treatments are just some of the more common approaches to cleft lips and cleft palates. The treatment plan for each child depends on many factors, including the severity of the birth defects, the general health of the child, and accessibility to medical services.
