Please help. Has anyone out there experienced numbness as a result of wisdom teeth extraction? The right half of my lower lip and chin are completely numb. Also, my teeth in that area are very sensative. I do have a tingling sensation in my lip at times. Is this numbness permanent? Is the tingling a sign that the nerve is regenerating and I will eventually regain sensation? I am very concerned.
