Cleft Palate & Cleft Lip
An oral-facial cleft is a birth defect that occurs when the lip or the roof of the mouth do not form properly. The defect may include a cleft lip, a cleft palate or both.
A cleft lip is a gap in the upper lip, usually just below the nose. A cleft palate is a gap in the roof of the mouth or in the soft tissue at the back of the mouth. In the majority of cases, a cleft lip and cleft palate occur together.
