My Cleft FAQs

I always had so many questions whilst going through my cleft treatment. These could be simple, like when I first wondered why I'd been born with a cleft and my friends hadn't, others are more complex, like wondering how to tell someone about my cleft. Please find below a few frequently asked questions.

Please be aware that as much as I try to understand the technical terms and procedures, I can’t always be completely medically correct. Please use websites like the NHS, CLAPA and Smile Train to find out more info about the technical side of cleft.
