What is a Cleft Lip And Cleft Palate?

During the first three months of pregnancy, there is a failure to completely union the two lip segments, resulting in a variable extent of clefting of the lip.
Cleft lip and cleft palate results in failure of fusion of the two palatine shelves. This failure may be confined to the soft palate alone or involve both hard and soft palate.
Simply put, clefts are unexpected openings or gaps. They are often found on an infant’s lip and/or on the roof of their mouth (i.e. their palate). Cleft lip and palate affects 1 in 700 births. It is one of the most common birth anomalies worldwide.
Clefts develop in the first trimester of pregnancy when key tissues do not fuse. Some children are born with both a cleft lip and a cleft palate. Clefts may also be associated with specific syndromes.
Genetic and environmental influences are believed to trigger clefts in infants worldwide.
Children affected by clefts can experience life-limiting barriers to nutrition, speech, oral health, community inclusion, and more.
