What is a Cleft Palate?

A cleft palate is a congenital condition produced by an inadequate closure of the roof of the mouth. This incomplete development leaves an opening in the gum tissue making eating and speaking uncomfortable. A cleft palate may also affect the upper mouth and lip area.

What is a Cleft Lip?

A cleft lip is a common congenital condition resulting from the underdevelopment of facial structures while the infant is still in the womb. This birth condition causes a slit in the top lip, making eating and speaking difficult, just like a cleft palate.
At Premier Oral Surgery, we recognize that congenital conditions may affect your child’s oral health, smile, and appearance. Our oral surgeons provide treatment for congenital disorders and ensure that your child can enjoy the lifestyle they deserve.
