Orthodontist Reston, VA - Stang Family Orthodontics

Cleft Lip / Palate Treatment

Orthodontic treatment for cleft lip and palate patients tends to be more complex, take more time and clinical resources, and require working with multiple dental, surgical, and medical providers to get the best results. Dr. Stang has had further experience with cleft lip/palate patients and their families and can work with you to discover the best treatment and treatment timing. Patients and parents may access additional resources related to these conditions by visiting the website for the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) www.acpa-cpf.org. The ACPA recommends that patients born with birth defects benefit the most when all their providers work together in interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary teams, ensuring not only the best outcome, but also the most effective utilization of health resources.
