My daughter aged 13 was just diagnosed with Bell’s palsy. She has braces and has a scheduled appointment to have two teeth extracted to make room for more. I am wondering if she should continue with the appointment and the extractions due to the Bell’s? Will extracting teeth make her Bell’s worse? Please help if you can. Sincerely a very worried mom. She has had a rough time as it is and I don’t want to make it worse for her, but I also don’t want to prolong the years of the braces that she has to wear. Your help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
