FAQ



Cleft Palate Birth Defects
A cleft palate is a birth defect that prevents the roof of the mouth from properly forming during pregnancy. Typically by the 10th week of gestation a baby’s hard palate (the region toward the front of the mouth) and soft palate (towards the back of the throat) fuse together to form a functioning palate. A cleft palate means that this process of joining individual sections of tissues and oral structures was interrupted and incomplete.


Approximately 6,800 babies are born each year in the United States who have either a cleft palate, cleft lip, or both defects. Most children born with a cleft palate also have a cleft lip, but a cleft palate alone is possible. In these cases, females are more likely to be born with just a cleft palate. Infants with Asian, Latino, and Native American are at greater risks of being born with cleft palates, but genetics play just a small role in overall risks. Medications and influences on the mother during pregnancy pose greater threats.


Because cleft palates are often associated with cleft lips, the diagnosis is often first suspected when an ultrasound reveals a cleft lip or when a cleft lip is visualized immediately after birth. Doctors still routinely exam newborns for cleft palates, with or without cleft lips. This is done by examining the roof of the mouth and by feeling along the roof of the mouth to make sure a cleft isn’t hidden by skin.
Babies born with cleft palates are at risk for various complications. The most immediate concern is that a baby with a cleft palate often cannot eat easily, especially if the cleft is large. In cases where the cleft palate is limited to the soft palate and it is not very extreme, the baby may be able to suck well enough and only need supplemental feedings.


A baby’s breathing may be labored in cases of serious clefts, especially when they involve both the lip and palate. Hearing and speech are also at risk, as malformation of the palate prevents the middle ear from working well. When there is hearing loss and structural abnormalities, it is challenging for the child to develop healthy speech patterns. Later in life the baby may also show signs of tooth and gum malformation. All of these complications also contribute to risks to the child’s self-esteem and emotional well-being as he or she struggles with self-image.


Because of these serious complications, treatment of cleft palates is invaluable. Usually a string of surgeries is necessary to fix the defects, and these are best started within the first 18 months of life. Before treatments, though, babies often need care by nutritionists and pediatric specialists to make sure they are getting the proper nutrition and meeting other developmental milestones. Long-term care may also involve oral surgeons to address dental problems.
