Hi , My niece recently had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted and suffered Right sided numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> of her <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan>. It has been nearly 3 weeks and her <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> is now very discoloured with bruising. Only on the numb side? Is this a further sx or is something more going on? Thank you This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587014'>Bruised nerve due to wisdom tooth extraction</a>.
The dental surgeon specializes in wisdom teeth and he told me I will almost definitely have permanent numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> in my jaw and <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> after the surgery since the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> has been there so long and more than likely has grown in and around the main nerve. He does not want to chance doing the surgery and now has me scared to go to another dental surgeon who may say he is willing to do it. I have been in pain for almost two weeks with it now.
Over the next 7 to 10 days I had intense pain, facial swelling/bruising and most worryingly very strong numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> and pain to the left hand side/front of my <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> and under my chin. Between Aug and Oct '08 I attended the hospital with regards to the numbness. I still had intense numbness in the left hand side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> as well as under my chin. These areas however were NEVER without a loss of complete <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feespan>ling so I had hope at this stage.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> "numbness" is an unfortunate but well known complication of wisdom tooth removal. Your surgeon should closely monitor your progress to determine if any intervention ie. surgery is advised. Most cases resolve on their own within three months. However, you should be closely monitored by a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon during this time period. I suggest you seek out a surgeon near where you are so you can make frequent visits.
Hi Dr Kirsch, I've emailed you a couple of times, and hoping I can ask a further question on my mom's injury. she had a wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> in March, and has had numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> in her <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> ever since. she just had a CT scan done to rule out any other factors (ie tumors), and that is fine. This numbness is really causing her tremendous anxiety.
I see much written on inferior alveolar nerve post wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> but nothing on the nerve being damaged by just the wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> itself. Can someone tell me if that is possible? I assume that it certainly could be but certain foods make the exaggerate the sensation greatly and even highly stressful situations will do the same thing. The only time it's at what I call its most calm is when I wake up in the morning....
Depending on the location of the wisdom teeth prior to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span>, in some cases paitents are permanently numb. Prior to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> 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 should recover. Check back in with your dentist or oral surgeon. Good luck.
Hi there. Numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> or tingling in the <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> also known as paresthesia, occur most commonly due to damage to the nervous system. Damage to the lingual nerve supplying the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> as a complication of dental procedures like wisdom tooth extraction, implants or root canal procedures. Other conditions could be stroke. sometimes these can involve the lips or jaw. Calcium and vitamin B complex deficiency needs to be addressed. Consult an oral surgeon for assessment of possibilities. Hope this helps.
I have left sided burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> and left sided facial pain and ear ringing for the last 3 years , it started after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span>, have seen many doctors but no gain. This discussion is related to Headache, Burning Pain on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan>, side of Faceand scalp, Fatigue.
I've had orange <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> for about 4 months since I had an operation to have my wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> pulled. I was anesthetized and given a 5-day course of erythromycin subsequently. I'm fairly positive it has something to do with the antibiotics I was administered. I brush off just about all of the orange on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> each night, and it's fine the morning after. But by the end of the day, it's completely orange again.
since it's so close to the wisdom teeth, it can be accidentally cut with a scalpel or with a high speed bur during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> sectioning during a wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> procedure. The patient has a TOTALLY numb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> if the lingual nerve is cut in two. I know this will sound strange but it's a good sign that only half of your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> is numb. If there's tingling, burning or pain in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan>, part of the lingual nerve is working and not completely cut.
It is usually associated with history of traumatic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> of ipsilateral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Third possibility can be sinusitis due to possible oro-antral fistula after extraction leading to sinus infection. This may lead to dull pain over the cheek area but inability to close eye and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> involvement may not be explainable with this condition. You may consult an oral surgeon/physician/ neurologist to rule out above stated possibilities who may be able to help you in this regard. Take care.

Usually due to the injection of anesthetic or the trauma of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span>, the numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> is most often transient and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feespan>ling will return over time. sometimes it could take as long as six months but usually sooner. There is nothing you can do to regain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feespan>ling sooner. You should however let the treating doctor know of your symptoms. Also be careful when eating so you don't bite your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tonguespan> and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feespan>l it.

Could this be the result of any nerve damage from the extractions?
i dont think you have injury to the nerve as the injury is most commonly to the lingual nerve which supplies the anterior part of the <<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>tyle = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span>pan> and floor of the mouth and u r complaining of numbne<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>s</span> related to ur chin , the nerve supplying the cheek is far away the wisdom tooth area to be injured in the operaton check ur oral surgeon to reassure you
