Speech Impairment Due to Facial Paralysis
Facial paralysis is the loss of facial movement resulting from inflammation, injury, infection, or absence of the facial nerve or facial musculature. Most of the time, facial paralysis affects only one side of the face, causing an asymmetrical appearance. While the embarrassment of asymmetrical features can cause issues to a person’s self-esteem and confidence, many people with Bell’s palsy also face speech impairment that affects their lives.
