When the roof of the mouth (palate) and lip don’t fully develop in the womb, a gap may remain. This is called a cleft lip and/or palate. It affects every function of the face except sight. Eating, hearing, talking, smelling and tasting are all compromised when this condition isn’t treated well. Our unique approach makes it possible to have complete repair.
