Cleft Lip or Palate Treatment in Carson City, NV & Surrounding Areas

Correct the Problem Before It Leads to Complications

Cleft lips and cleft palates are birth defects usually corrected by a subspecialty called cranial orthodontics and involve a team of professionals including therapists, speech pathologists, oral surgeons, and plastic surgeons. Orthodontists who specialize in craniofacial orthodontics are just one part of this specialized team. If you are seeking cleft lip or palate treatment in Carson City, NV & Surrounding Areas for your child, you’ll be pleased to know Dr. D’Ascoli is highly experienced in cranial orthodontics.

Why a Cleft Lip or Palate Needs to Be Corrected

We all start out with a cleft lip and palate, but in most cases, they seal together before birth. Clefting remains after birth when there’s insufficient tissue for them to seal. This happens early in fetal development, but no one knows the cause.

Additionally, the defect is more than just cosmetic, it can lead to complications so it’s important to correct it. Complications include:

  • Struggles with eating
  • Food passing into the nose
  • Speech difficulties
  • Ear infections
  • Dental problems

When part of the treatment team, Dr. D’Ascoli’s role is evaluating the patient’s tooth and jaw development and growth. While not directly involved in the surgery itself, he evaluates x-rays and models that are used to monitor patients pre- and post-surgery,

Getting Treatment Early

In most cases, parents know before birth that their child will have a cleft lip or palate. Surgery is required and typically, it is performed at or before six months. In some cases, more than one surgery may be needed.
