Managua, Nicaragua—It is amazing to see how despite undergoing numerous surgical procedures and treatments, many of these children maintain a great attitude and disposition.
That is the case of this beautiful 14-year-old, Ana Jackeline (pictured above right). Ana has been in treatment at the orthodontic clinic for a few years and has undergone numerous surgeries. Recently, the dental and surgery teams decided that she would need orthodontic surgery when she is finished growing. For now, she will continue her orthodontic treatment until she’s ready for the surgery.
Having a dental approach to cleft lip and palate treatment is a great advantage because it leads to a better outcome for the patient.
