Depending on the location of the wisdom teeth
prior to extraction
, in some cases paitents are permanently numb
. Prior to extraction
the dentist should have evaluated the proximity to the nerve, and
avoided the extraction if that was the case.
Having a partially numb
or tingley lip is better than a completely numb
lip. It means that part of the nerve is working and
Check back in with your dentist or oral surgeon. Good luck.
