Fraza do cytowania: Zawiślak A. Changes in orofacial morphology in cleft palate patients – on a overview literature and own experience. Dental Forum. 2021;XLIX(1):30–36. DOI: https://doi.org/10.20883/df.2021.4.

Cleft palate is the most common developmental defect of the facial part of the skull, which significantly affects morphology and function of the stomatognatic system. Depending on the structures covered, this defect may have varying degrees of severity and clinical picture. The formation of the defect occurs already in the period of early embryogenesis, during the formation of individual facial structures of the facial part of the skull, and yet the consequences of its occurrence, for most patients, accompany throughout life. There is no doubt that people who have been diagnosed with orofacial cleft should be given special medical care that takes into account their multi-specialist medical needs. The purpose of this work is to systematize and present current knowledge of changes in the facial structure of the skull and their clinical implications in cleft palate patients on the basis of available literature and own experience.

Key words: cleft palate, orofacial morphology, cephalometry.
