Prosthodontic Considerations and Treatments for Cleft Lip and Palate Patients at Different Stages of Life

Synopsis

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common birth defects in the United States, occurring as high as one in every 700 to 1,000 newborns. The cause can be multi-factorial: genetics, drugs, vital deficiency or excess, or cigarette smoking. Environmental and other unknown factors may also contribute.
 
In the United States, infants born with cleft lip and palate will be referred to a craniofacial team that consists of a pediatric physician, plastic surgeon, feeding consultant, speech pathologist, ENT specialist, pediatric dentist, orthodontist, oral surgeon, prosthodontist, and social worker. Oral health professionals play an important role in the treatment, providing pre-surgical soft/hard tissue molding, regular dental checkups due to high caries risk, orthodontic treatment, orthognathic surgery, and speech prosthesis.
 
This symposium bring together all the health professionals who would participate on a craniofacial team, to provide a cohesive program designed for dentists, dental hygienists, nurses, physicians, social workers, speech pathologists, and feeding consultants. Working together is vital to the treatment of cleft lip and cleft palate patients. Join us in learning about these syndromes, and learn how you can be part of the treatment solutions.
 
This program is designed for the general dentists, pediatric dentists, oral surgeons, pediatricians, plastic surgeons, ENTs, and speech pathologists.
