She told me it's not uncommon to go numb in the tongue
, teeth, gums, chin and lips after tooth
extractions. Simply, due to the nerve that runs in the lower part of your jaw. So she told me that this nerve was most likely injured during the extraction of my lower left side wisdom tooth. (and by injured never she said it could be that it was stretched, crushed or in RARE cases cut to get to tooth out. But she said mine was not cut.
