Description: Cleft Palate & Craniofacial Anomalies is an approachable and easy-to-understand reference for the novice as well as the more experienced clinician involved in the care of patients with cleft palate or craniofacial anomalies. Cleft lip or palate is the fourth most common birth defect, affecting about one in every 750 children born in the United States each year. These deformities create problems in the appearance and function of the lip, palate, nose, and teeth. Difficulties in speech and hearing are almost always present as a result. Written as a resource for ?what you need to know? as well as a practical guide on ?how to do it,? the text covers everything from basic information on anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the face and oral cavity to details of oral, dental, and ENT anomalies and their effects on speech, resonance, and feeding.
