Drugs are used to treat the condition chemically, surgeries attempt to transplant nerves from other areas of the face and body. Speech therapies and plastic facial surgeries are tried. Botox is almost always part of the regimen.
Oral discomfort, physical appearance and psychological distress from the victims physical effect of the traumatic neuropathy, are under treated. Oral function and esthetical appeal are part of who we are presenting ourselves as, to the world.
People lose their jobs, their friends, their spouses, and they feel completely alone and reclusive.
Palsy patients need triage. They need a holistic team approach from medical professionals. Everyone on the team should be in tune with the physical and emotional needs of a patient whose life is severely and sometimes permanently, altered.
Dental problems are a neglected aspect of the treatment of palsy. If a Dentist is trained in the care of the patient with facial paralysis, the Dentist should be the second person called after the primary treating Medical Doctor.
PalsyPal prosthetics are designed and manufactured for each individual by Lanfried Ortho Technology.
Dentists are trained, by Lanfried Ortho Technology, to use PalsyPal Prosthetics to treat Bell’s Palsy, Acoustic Neuroma and Stroke patients presenting with facial paralysis. Dentists are now part of a holistic approach for treating patients oral function deficits, after plastic surgery, facial reconstruction, acupuncture, Botox, physical therapy and counseling have been used and oral issues are still unaddressed.
The first impression is always very important in this society.
