After birth, a baby’s brain develops very rapidly in the first 3 years. In the first 9 months it is expected to grow up to two times and in the third year it is expected to grow to almost three times. In order for the brain to adapt to the rapid growth of the skull, the skull bones remain separate from each other for 12-18 months with flexible fibrous tissues called “sutures” (fontanel). During birth, when necessary, the sutures overlap without causing damage to the brain. It protects the brain from trauma during the postnatal period and produces bone for the cranial bones to adapt to growth during brain growth. Small skull disorders that occur during birth are normal and recover very quickly.

Cleft Lip and Palate

Cleft lip and palate occurs as a result of a fusion during different phases of development inside the mother’s womb (in the embryological stage). The cleft lip and palate is seen in different races at different rates seen on average in 750-1000 births in Europe. It is mostly common in Japan (1 in about 600 births) and it’s seen the least in black Americans (about 1 in 2200 births). In this illness, which is called rabbit lip among society, 80% of the cases have a lip cleft, on one side and predominantly on the left side. The left / right ratio is 2/1. Use of certain medication, vitamin deficiencies, virus infections, cigarette smoking, genetics (familial) are thought to be the cause.

The operation performed to correct the incompatibilities between the upper and lower jaws is called corrective jaw operations. The medical name for it is orthognathic surgery. These surgeries are performed due to the biting disorders often related to underdevelopment or overgrowth of one of the jaws. Prior to surgery, orthodontic specialists must apply dental braces to prepare the teeth for surgery and make them compatible with each other. This treatment can be started from the age of 12 years once permanent teeth have emerged.

The face is one of the most important parts of the body in every respect. In addition to its basic aesthetic appearance, it is the region where many vital functions such as eating, breathing, speaking, mimicry, taste, feeling, etc. are made. Anatomically; we see that the upper and lower jaws cover two thirds of the face when we distinguish between upper (forehead), middle (upper jaw-cheeks) and lower face (lower jaw). Jaw bones; unlike other bones, they have teeth on them and are in close co-operation with them. Corrective jaw surgery is the department of surgery that covers all diseases such as congenital-developmental diseases and trauma-tumors of this region.
