Angry Wisdom Teeth

Hello , I got all four of my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday and to this day I have this annoying numbness from my bottom teeth to my bottom lip to my chin. I called the denist and they said that it is normal. Did anyone else have that kind of problem? And was there anything you they did to make the numbness go away. Its driving me crazy!! Thanks!

Re: Wisdom Teeth

I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed 2 weeks ago today; the surgery was at 8 in the morning; my numbness went away by early evening. But everyone's different. Mine were easy to extract, so I guess I was lucky.

Re: Wisdom Teeth

I also had 4 wisdom teeth taken out 2 weeks ago yesterday. Like Hypnotic, I still have a numbness on my bottom left. The Oral Surgeon told me that this is normal, as long as I feel tingling, it is a sign that my lip is waking up. He said give it another 2 week. It should (hopefully) get back to normal.

Re: Wisdom Teeth

When I got my wisdom teeth out the surgeon said when he was going over the risks involved that there is a very slight possibility that your nerves could be damaged. This would lead to the numbess, which may be permanent. He said most of the time people experience numbness, but it goes away with time.

Re: Wisdom Teeth

It sounds like you have some nerve damage. I wouldn't consider this normal. You should be feeling some tingling sensation to some degree if the nerve is not totally damage. The tingling sensation is the nerve trying to come back to life. This sensation may last for a couple of months or longer depending on the extend of damage. If you don't feel any tingling sensation then it's not a good sign that the nerve is trying to regenerate or repair itself. Call your doctor and tell them you are concern about nerve damages and go in for an exam. If you already called him and he knew about your situation he should be the one following up with you to see how you are doing. I know most doctors follow up with patients who might be having complications from a procedure. Good luck.
