What is Cleft Lip and Palate, and how does it affect you?
Two frequent congenital birth abnormalities are cleft lip and palate. A cleft lip is a gap in the lip, whereas a cleft palate is a gap in the roof of the mouth (palate). The term “congenital” refers to a condition that exists at the moment of a child’s birth. Facial clefts can affect people of all ethnicities and are twice as prevalent in boys as they are in girls, despite the fact that cleft palates are slightly more common in girls.
