What is the objective of cleft lip and palate treatment?
Our objective here at Richardsons Dental craniofacial hospital is to make each and every individual with cleft lip, cleft alveolus, cleft palate or any other craniofacial anomaly to be made like any individual without these deformities. What this means is that they would get incorporated into society without any difference from the ones who don’t have these defects. It means that they have excellent speech, excellent cosmetics, and good self-esteem. Our experienced craniofacial team headed by Dr. Sunil Richardson with his vast experience are just doing that the same for thousands of patients here in South India for the last decade and a half.
Your search for the best cleft treatment ends here. Why?
This is because our experienced team consists of a cleft and craniofacial surgeon, orthodontist, pediatric anesthesiologist, ent surgeon, dental surgeon, prosthodontist, pediatrician, speech and language pathologist, experienced nurses. Not only that, all the facilities are under one roof including cone beam CT scan, state of the art operation suites, saws, and drills for orthognathic or bony procedures, laser, etc.
This team has proven time and again consistently over many years and are at this job regularly and continuously.
This short video is of a young man who is now 18 and has undergone various treatments at the Richardsons dental and craniofacial hospital for the last 11 years. He underwent lip revision, palatal fistula closure, secondary alveolar bone grafting, speech therapy, orthodontics and finally rhinoplasty a few months before. He is pursuing his higher studies in engineering and excels there. Everyone around him can relate to him with no one ever asking him about his lip, nose, teeth or speech. This is our goal and is the norm here at Richardsons Craniofacial Hospital and the odd one.
