July is National Cleft & Craniofacial Awareness & Prevention Month. Cleft and craniofacial conditions affect thousands of infants, children, teens and adults in the United States each year. Some children are born with congenital anomalies like cleft lip and palate, others with more complex, life-threatening craniofacial conditions. Some are burned; others are injured in accidents and animal attacks or diagnosed with various oral/head/neck and skin diseases. According to the American Cleft Palate – Craniofacial Association, 1 in 700 children are born with cleft each year. At Roseman Dental & Orthodontics, our team, led by Advanced Education in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (AEODO) Program Director, Dr. Glen Roberson, works with patients that are only a few days old, babies who are born with issues that impact their ability to feed and thrive. With early intervention and use of a variety of techniques in orthodontia and dentofacial orthopedics, these young patients can be put on a track towards recovery. Roseman Dental & Orthodontics does this for patients at no cost – and has donated over $500,000 in care to be able to treat any patient, regardless of their ability to pay. Roseman Dental & Orthodontics is one of the very few clinics in Nevada to provide this highly specialized care.
During this Summer issue of Dental 360°, you’ll learn about how Roseman Dental & Orthodontics treats cleft lip and palate in infants through an approach that utilizes a Nasoalveolar Molding also known as a NAM. You’ll also learn about cavities and why you might have them. In addition, we’ll provide you a few tips for keeping a healthy summer smile.
