Cleft are one of the most common human birth defects, occuring in 1 in 700 babies. Of these findings, 50% have a cleft lip & palate while the other 25% have a cleft lip or palate alone.

Siloam Cleft Clinic provides a complete treatment for facial ad oral malformations of cleft lip and palate. Cleft lip and cleft palate are facial and oral malformations that occur very early in pregnancy, while the baby is developing inside its mother. A cleft result when there is not enough tissue in the mouth or lip area, and the tissue that is available does not join together properly.
A cleft lip is a physical split or separation of the two sides of the upper lip and appears as a narrow opening or gap in the skin of the upper lip. This separation often extends beyond the base of the nose and includes the bones of the upper jaw and or upper gum. A cleft palate is a split opening in the roof of the mouth. A cleft palate can involve the hard palate (the bony front portion of the roof of the mouth) and or the soft palate (the soft back portion of the roof of the mouth).
Cleft lip and cleft palate can occur on one or both sides of the mouth. Because the lip and the palate develop separately, it is possible to have a cleft lip without a cleft palate, a cleft palate without a cleft lip or both cleft lip and cleft palate together.
