To research the use of a novel set of intraoral tools called the Easy Stretch Toolkit for the therapeutic management of facial burns and other facial disorders.
In this initial pilot study, the investigators will recruit 20 adult patients who have sustained facial burns to complete the 12 week treatment. The device creators chose 20 patients based on the investigators' experience of the available patients seen from the consult service. Participants will need to be able to attend a weekly session with the device creators and complete the entire 3 month prescriptive program. Participants will be outpatient. For the purpose of this study, facial burns will be defined as a burn injury to the midface or lower half of the face and may be unilateral or bilateral. Chronic burns are defined as those burns that are not in the acute healing phase, ie., there are no concerns for injury to new or healing skin or wound dehiscence.

Traumatic injuries to the facial nerve. This may result in FACIAL PARALYSIS, decreased lacrimation and salivation, and loss of taste sensation in the anterior tongue. The nerve may regenerate and reform its original pattern of innervation, or regenerate aberrantly, resulting in inappropriate lacrimation in response to gustatory stimuli (e.g., "crocodile tears") and other syndromes.
General or unspecified injuries to the soft tissue or bony portions of the face.
Dysfunction of one or more cranial nerves causally related to a traumatic injury. Penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; NECK INJURIES; and trauma to the facial region are conditions associated with cranial nerve injuries.
Stretch receptors found in the bronchi and bronchioles. Pulmonary stretch receptors are sensors for a reflex which stops inspiration. In humans, the reflex is protective and is probably not activated during normal respiration.
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
