A place to call home, where you are never alone
PRS Dental IssuesWe recommend seeking dental care when your child is very young to avoid any surprises later on. If you have access to a pediatric dentist, that would be to your advantage.
Dental development is usually affected in
children with a cleft and often includes missing teeth in the area of the cleft,
extra teeth, crooked, tipped, rotated or displaced teeth (teeth can come in the
middle of the palate) and malformation of the alveolar ridge (gum). X-rays can
be taken to determine the position of the teeth and detect missing teeth.
