Cleft lip and palate is a common craniofacial anomaly, requiring complex multidisciplinary treatment and having lifelong implications for affected individuals. The management starts soon after birth and involves a series of treatments during the first 20 years of life. The importance of the dentition and contribution of the orthodontist to the care of cleft patients from infancy to adulthood are presented. Close communication between orthodontists and surgeons is emphasized. The orthodontic treatment plan is developed around the anatomic, functional, and developmental needs of the patient. Despite great progress towards a better understanding of cleft lip and palate, as yet there is no accepted consensus on the management strategy. This article outlines the multidisciplinary approach to the management of the cleft lip and palate patients.
