A cleft palate occurs if the tissue that makes up the roof of the mouth does not join together completely during pregnancy. For some babies, both the front and back parts of the palate are open. For others, only part of the palate is open. 1
About 1 in every 1,700 babies is born with cleft palate in the United States. 2
Surgery to repair a cleft palate is recommended within the first 18 months of life or earlier if possible.3
Surgical repair can improve the look and appearance of a child’s face and might also improve breathing, hearing, and speech and language development. 4
