    • Clefts involving the lip and palate are the most commonly seen congenital  deformities that occur at  the time of birth.
    • They are not life threatening unless associated with other syndromes that have systemic complication.Cleft of the lip and palate can occur individually or together  in various combinations.
    • Clefting of the primary palate  or secondary palate lead to a series of distortions in dentofacial development.
