    nerve damage extraction

    I have nerve damage from the extraction of the 3rd molar. I have been suffering for 2.5 years, seen perhaps 35 doctors and dental specialists, undergone treatments and procedures based on 'assumed' diagnoses, nothing has helped, if anything I'm in worse shape now than at any time in the past. The pain presents as a sharp, stinging pain closer to the rear of tooth number 4 than in the area where 3 was extracted.

    I am in need of dental reconstruction but cannot proceed until this problem is dealt with. I have been in temporary bridges for most of this time, I cannot eat normally and my mental and physical health is deteriorating, and am needing ongoing pain meds to help me just to cope. My life has become simply about trying to manage pain.

    I am grateful for any insight, suggestions.

    Many thanks

    Re: nerve damage extraction

    I feel really bad for you.
    I had a lower wisdom tooth removed 2 months ago and in the area where the wisdom tooth was removed, i felt so much irritation in that area for 9 days. Thank goodness the irritation went away. I took the usual salt water and aspirin for the irritation.
    There will be a small hole where the tooth was removed. The hole will gradually fill in with the new bone and tissue.
    I know one occurrence that can happen after a wisdom tooth is removed is getting a dry socket.
    The treatment for a dry socket is to pack the wound with a special substance to aid healing and block the nerve and bone from additional stimuli.

    Your saying you've had pain for 2.5 years after one of your teeth was removed. I feel for you.
    What have these doctors and dentists told you was causing the pain?
    Did any of them have an answer?
