"When I see other people
react to me, I feel even more
thrilled to wear PalsyPal®."

How PalsyPal® Makes a Difference

Acoustic Neuroma presents itself in approximately 6,000 cases a year.

The Acoustic Neuroma, like most of the other causal factors, can cause permanent paralysis immediately after the surgical removal of the neuroma.

Symptoms of facial paralysis include, yet are not limited to, dysfunctions of the face and mouth, such as:

  • Inability to Smile

  • Hypersensitivity of Tissue of the Face and Oral Cavity

  • Inability to control Saliva Flow in the Oral Cavity

  • Eating and Mastication Difficulty

  • Speech is Slurred and Unclear

  • Angular Cheilitis and Chapped Lips

  • Trauma to Intraoral Tissues

  • Tooth Loss

  • Hearing Loss

  • Oral Ulcers

  • Drooling

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 victim's 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, and 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 a 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 patient's 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.
We can help most patients.​
