Structural Anomalies Related to Cleft and Craniofacial Conditions (WEBS0520509)

Course Description

These Perspectives (SIG 5) articles focus on the functional problems caused by the structural anomalies of the craniofacial complex and pathways for intervention. Articles describes the impact of submucous cleft palate, dental/skeletal anomalies, and distraction osteogenesis on speech and resonance outcomes for individuals with craniofacial anomalies. Multidisciplinary roles and best practice recommendations are also provided.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • define the physical and acoustic features of classic and occult submucous cleft palate
  • identify the dental and occlusal anomalies that may cause obligatory articulation errors in patients with cleft lip and palate
  • describe surgical management associated with distraction osteogenesis

Assessment Type
Self-assessment—Think about what you learned and report on the Completion Form how you will use your new knowledge.
