What is Bell’s Palsy?
Bell’s palsy is a form of temporary facial paralysis that results from injury or damage to one of the facial nerves and can cause significant facial distortion.
Dr. Monica Tadros specializes in Bell’s Palsy and facial paralysis treatment. Disorders of the facial nerve, including paralysis, develop from a variety of causes. Abnormal movement or paralysis of the face can result from infection, injury, or tumors, and an evaluation by your physician is needed to determine the cause.
What Is the Facial Nerve?
The facial nerve resembles a telephone cable and contains about ten thousand individual nerve fibers. Each fiber carries electrical impulses to a specific facial muscle. Information passing along the fibers of this nerve allows us to laugh, cry, smile, or frown, hence the name, “the nerve of facial expression.”
Among the most complex nerves in our body, the facial nerve is central to our ability to manipulate our expression in countless ways, adding layers of emotion to the way we communicate. When there is nerve damage, facial weakness occurs. If these nerve fibers are irritated, then movements of the facial muscles appear as spasms or twitching.
