What is the Variance a Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate?

While in pre-natal development facial structures first grow separately before combining collectively. If
this particular fusion is not suitable, the direct result can be a cleft or splitting up in the lip or palate. Based on the positioning

of the structure
separation, the birth defect is termed either a cleft lip or cleft palate, and toddlers could very well

be born suffering from both of
these complications.

During fetal development the lips normally form between the fourth and 7th weeks of gestation. A cleft

lip is a birth defect
resulting from the malformation from the lip during this process. As the term indicates, a cleft lip has

effects on the lip,
specifically the top of the lip. Any time a cleft birth defect happens in this location it can have a

range of severity. A number of infants are generally
born having a minimal break up in the physical lip, while others might be delivered with full separations

of both sides of the upper
lip, entirely up to, and often into, the nasal area. A split on one side of the lip is known as a

unilateral cleft, and a
split on each side of the top lip is regarded as a bilateral cleft.
While a cleft lip is more naturally visible on the outside lip tissue, the split can essentially contain

tissue and bones inside the
upper jaw as well as gum. As in the severity range for the lip tissue, the higher jaw and gum area can

have anywhere from tiny
break ups to entire partitions.

During the course of pregnancy the palate shapes at the beginning of gestation and is usually complete by

the 10th week. The palate is the roof of the
mouth, and can be further divided into the soft and hard palate. The soft palate is the space in the

direction of the throat and the hard
palate is the front area of the roof of the mouth. A cleft palate refers to the separation in the roof of

the mouth at any place
from the soft palate to the hard palate. Much like a cleft lip, the deformity can range from minor to

significant, extending to an
almost full splitting of the palate.
Quite a few children given birth to with cleft palates also have mandible deformities as a result of the

cleft palate extending into further
structures of the face.
