Birth Defects of the Face - Cleft Lips and Palates
There are different types of birth defects of the face, but perhaps the most known are cleft lips and cleft palates. These birth defects can dramatically change the way a child’s face looks when he or she is born. A cleft is essentially a split or notch in the upper lip (cleft lip) or in the roof of the mouth (cleft palate). These can either be somewhat mild in relative appearance or severely impact not only the physical features but the mechanical structures of the mouth.


Cleft lips and cleft palates form in utero early in the pregnancy. In a healthy pregnancy, the baby’s lips and palates actually developing in independent sections at first, and then join together to form each individual facial structure.


For the upper lip, where a cleft palate can develop, the full forming should be complete by the 7th week of gestation. However, this normal process does not always happen, and the result is a separation of varying degrees on the upper lift, most typically the left side. Sometimes both sides of the upper lip are affected, and in extreme cases, the cleft is so disfiguring that it leaves a separation all the way to the nostrils and can impact the jaw bone and gums of the upper jaw.


The palate is the area of the mouth most often referred to as the roof, and it is further divided by description into the hard and soft palate, depending on the location (the soft palate is further to the back of the mouth). A cleft can occur anywhere in the palate and include both the front hard palate and the back soft palate. The defect occurs when the palate forms incompletely and the separate structures never fuse as necessary, which is usually by the 10th week of pregnancy. The more the palate is affected, the more danger the child is in when it comes to basic needs such as eating and breathing.


How Are Cleft Lips and Palates Diagnosed?
Because cleft lips and palates are birth defects with often very noticeable physical symptoms, these defects are often first diagnosed before a child is even born. Standard ultrasounds can detect the deformities, especially the cleft lips. It can be more difficult to see the cleft palates through routine ultrasound technology, but if there is a cleft lip present most commonly there will also be some degree of a cleft palate present as well.
