If your child was born with a cleft lip, you are likely searching for solutions. Cleft lip treatments are a very important matter to attend to with a skilled orthodontist. We urge you to bring your child in for a free screening right away.
We provide the treatment needed for your child to grow up without these complications. Please do not wait to give us a call right away to get set up with a free consultation.
Diagnosing and Treating Cleft Lip and Palate
The first thing you should do after your child is diagnosed with a cleft lip or cleft palate is meet with a craniofacial orthodontist. This needs to be something that you do very early on. You should aim to get your child in the orthodontist’s office before they turn one.
One of the benefits of getting in early, aside from our available cleft lip treatments is that we can show you how to care for your child’s mouth and teeth safely and properly. There are special considerations for oral health when your child has a cleft lip and/or palate.
We aim to perform surgical intervention for your child before they start to get teeth. We know that this can seem very scary, but we assure you that we successfully have treated many children. This is going to happen around 3 – 6 months old. This needs to happen in order for your child to develop orally.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions. We would be more than happy to answer them during your free consultation. We are here to help you feel confident in the treatment that your child will be receiving.
There may be more care needed after they are done with their treatment from us. You can consider speech therapy when the time comes. Some people opt for plastic surgery or cosmetic dentistry to help the appearance of the teeth. We work closely with speech therapists to ensure that your child has normal speech.
