Fisulab 2016 Report

We closed one more year of helping kids and adults born with cleft lip and palate and their families. During 2016 with the support of all of our friends and allies we kept treating our patients with our known quality and standards. New patients have come to join the ones that were with us before and some others finished their treatment. We increase the number of sessions in a 20%, adding a big total of 4188, thanks to a better following of the execution of the treatments and increasing the loyalty of our patients. 

Thank you for supporting this noble cause.

Speech therapy and stimulation groups.

Every kid born with cleft lip and palate is at risk of having talking problems. While the palate is open it´s impossible for the kid to pronounce certain sounds correctly, and it can not be operated before he or she is 9 or 10 months old; for this reason the first sounds made by them are already made from an altered anatomy. This might cause kids to develop some wrong engrams of the sounds and can even affect the normal development of the language itself. Besides when children with this condition see that they fail trying to be understood by others, they start to have rejection feelings toward language. In Fisulab we have a special prevention program created to prevent or minimize language alterations so it can be develop according to the normal chronological stages and if the residual alterations appear they can be handled properly. This programs take place monthly with groups of kids from a similar age, their caretakers and the professionals in charge. In each of this group, each kid is individually observed, and their interaction with their parents  as well, in order to give some guidelines and demonstrations on how the parents can be role models for their kids to improve their communication. The main goal is to  lead children into school without their language problems; this is not always possible, some children come to Fisulab when they are already at school, and even older, or grown ups, who had never have received any language therapy, therefore they already come with big problems in their communication, their academic development and their social skills. With this advanced cases in particular, we do some individual, virtual or face to face therapies to try to fix or improve their altered patterns.

Dental treatment

Dental treatment is essential in the rehabilitation of newborn children with cleft lip and palate. A good smile is the best way of showing wellness and a healthy life. We work to give them a perfect oral health. Keeping all their teeth and gums healthy and free of decays is fundamental for all the upcoming orthopedic and orthodontic treatments. Starting at five, when they grow all of their teeth, we start a strong intervention with mouth and face appliances in order to help the correct development of the face that has been conditioned from all of the previous surgeries.

This preparation of the dental arches allows the placement of the alveolar bone grafts, this surgery is fundamental so the teeth can have the support that is needed and don't get lost.

Later on when the growth is completed, treatment is changed for corrective orthodontics which helps the unaligned teeth to get back in place and finish the whole treatment with a big and beautiful smile as a result.

In some cases this orthodontics lead to a last surgery in which we obtain a facial harmony and the occlusion they didn't  have before.

All of the above is the reason why kids at Fisulab get specialized Dental treatment since they grow their first teeth until they finish their development.

In Fisulab, we treat 150 children monthly in dentistry.
