Things You Should Know About Cleft Palate And Lip Treatment Services
Cleft palate and lip are defects that occur when these two features fail to form properly during early pregnancy. Before birth, the baby's lip and palate should have properly joined. When the lip does not form properly, an opening develops in the upper lip and continues right into the nose. Tissues that should create the roof of your baby's mouth also sometimes do not join correctly. Both conditions can result in feeding and talking problems, possible loss of hearing, ear infections, and teeth problems as your infant develops.
