Bells palsy is a condition where inflammation of the facial nerve (facial nerve) occurs. Bells palsy can cause symptoms such as asymmetrical face, angled lips. If you experience bells palsy, you want to do tooth extraction and insertion of dentures, it can actually be done safely enough. Tooth extraction in some cases can be related to the occurrence of bells palsy, where infection can occur during tooth extraction and attack the facial nerve area. But this can be minimized by administering drugs before tooth extraction, such as antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs. by administering the drug, the extraction will be safer. The most important thing is that you tell your dentist that you have bells palsy, and tell you what routine medication you are taking (if any). You can also consult your neurologist beforehand, so that your doctor can provide more appropriate direction according to your medical condition.
