Abstract

Orofacial clefts are among the commonest malformations affecting mankind; even though most cases of orofacial clefts are non-syndromic, they may also manifest concomitantly with a wide array of syndromes. These syndromes with orofacial clefts often also cause diverse tooth abnormalities; knowledge on these peculiarities is fundamental for professionals to allow proper dental care for affected individuals.
