Brief Answer:
facial paralysis

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

I am sad to hear that you are having facia paralysis after a dental extraction. I would recommend that you be seen in the ER to evaluate the paralysis. If they can get to it early enough they can treat it and possibly resolve the issue. So please proceed to the ER

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
