My daughter is 2 years old and was detected with a soft cleft palate. We had performed soft cleft palate surgery for her. I read a few articles and it recommended ortho surgery as for cleft palate. But, I am confused as it is mentioned only cleft palate. I wanted to know whether children with a soft cleft palate also need to go under this repair. I do not see any misplacement in her teeth as well as a plastic surgeon, who performed her soft cleft surgery, also did not inform us about it. So, my question is do all soft cleft palate surgeries require dental treatment as well? What are the symptoms to identify whether our child need it?
