Specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Facial paralysis is a disease which causes partial or complete motor paralysis of the facial nerve and, therefore, of the facial muscles. The symptoms of this disease are unable to perform certain movements such as smiling, twinkling eye full, raised eyebrows, etc. This condition can be caused by various conditions or factors: tumors, trauma, acute and chronic ear infections, congenital disorders (Moebius syndrome) and, mostly, for unknown reasons. In the latter case, it is called Bell's palsy or facial palsy, the treatment should be started immediately after his appearance to make the recovery more quickly and effectively and prevent the sequelae of facial paralysis. Usually, corticosteroids are given to slow the progressive deterioration of the nerve and facial muscle massage. In severe cases, specific surgical treatments are also practiced by both static and dynamic techniques to restore movement and function of muscles.
