Weakness, deafness: Hearing loss from underdevelopment of the middle ear. The soft palate (the fold of tissue at the back of the mouth that separates the mouth from the nasal cavity) may move to the unaffected side because of muscle weakness on the affected side. The tongue may be small with nerve weakness on the affected side. In about 40 percent, the nerve responsible for moving the facial muscle s is weakened.

Complex diagnosis: Your diagnosis could be the cause of many disturbances in your bite and jaw joints and muscles. You must seek the care of a competent dentist familiar with the treatment of these consequences.
