    Abstract

    Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CLP) is a common facial birth defect (Watson, 2001). Corrective surgery to repair the cleft is often done early in infancy, before the child starts speaking. Surgical treatment is very important to achieve an acceptable esthetic result, to optimize normal bony facial growth and also to get a good speech outcome (Habel et al., 1996).
