Overview

CLEFT LIP:

Cleft lip is a physical split or separation of two sides of the upper lip and appears as a narrow opening or gap in the skin of upper lip. This separation often extends beyond the base of the nose and includes the bones of upper jaw or upper gum.

CLEFT PALATE:

Cleft palate is a split or opening in the roof of mouth. Cleft palate can involve the hard palate (the bony front portion of the roof of the mouth) and 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 cleft palate and a cleft palate without cleft lip, or both together.
