Numbness after wisdom teeth removal
Hi. I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out on June 2 of this year, and I continue to have altered sensation (semi-numbness) in the lower right hand part of my lip, chin, and tip of my tongue in that area. I have seen my oral surgeon twice after the surgery and after doing touch tests with a toothpick, he believes the feeling will come back, but he does not know when. Initially, I experienced considerable tingling but now that is mostly gone. Is my oral surgeon doing the right things and is there anything else I can do? When can I expect to recover from this? Thank you.
