Wisdom tooth wrapped around nerve

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth wrapped around nerve


After having a CT scan, it was revealed that the roots of one of the teeth appear to be wrapped around the nerve in my lower jaw. Although this tooth is currently not causing any problems, he said a "halo" was forming around it and that eventually it would need to be removed or a cyst would form. He said that there is a high probability of permanent nerve damage if it were fully extracted and recommended that only the upper half of the tooth be removed.
I was forced into it, as the wisdom tooth was impacted, laying sidewise, grafting to the jaw bone that was less on the right than the left, the nerve was wrapped around the roots, and there was a cyst growing over it all, that was getting larger after watching it for 2 years. The surgery was not bad, they did peel my gums away, get the tooth, and reattach my gums. I also had a hole in the back. The os told me that he kept my tooth, as the nerve had worn grooves into the root of the tooth.
If nerves are close to or wrapped around the tooth, you could end up with permanent nerve damage if not properly removed. Personally, I wouldn't risk letting a General Dentist do it.
Hello everyone. I had a tooth and wisdom tooth removed 4 days ago and my nerve was in the middle of the root of my wisdom tooth. Needless to say the nerve was stretched so i have numbness in my chin and lip on the left side along with my gum. The weird thing is the left corner of my mouth is not numb. The surgeon stated on time would tell. I was already taking B-12 so was happy to read that it might help. i do have the itching creep crawly, burning sensation.
I was then taken back into hospital opend up to find a nerve wrapped around a screw!!
My fiancee had oral surgery to remove a wisdom tooth which had its root wrapped around a nerve. Well it's been 5 days since his surgery and he can't open his mouth up to even eat, and not to mention his face is swollen bad. He woke up in the middle of the procedure, so they had to continue without giving him anything for the pain. We were wondering if it is normal for someone not to be able to open up there mouth after this procedure.
Now compare that to your nerve without its coating and a pulsating blood vessel literally bumping into it or wrapped around it....every time your heart beats it triggers the nerve sending tremendous jolts through your wiring. Dr.'s do not always understand nerve pain. I would encourage you to seek out via the web Dr's who specialize in treating nerve pain.
Peppermint tea is also great for gas/stomch upset. Byh the tim eyou finish the tea, you are pretty much gas-free. Gross, but true. It is better than those Gas-X type pills.
when my insurance kicks back in (I've already exceeded my limit)and my husband has an unfinished root canal that just fell out that he will have to take care of now. Also his wisdom tooth is coming in and needs to be removed!! I hope he can make it with that until next year! I was planning on finishing school this fall, and even though I wanted more kids (I already have 2 boys, 5 yrs. & 3 yrs.), I wasn't ready yet!
The purpose of the OGD was to look for the presence of a foreign object in my throat causing retching. I had suspected a tooth brush bristle because my tooth brush had been loosing a few bristles and a couple had got caught in my mouth whilst cleaning teeth. I thought that an unnoticed bristle may have been partially swallowed and became lodged in the larynx or oesophagus as this retching came on suddenly overnight.
Maybe we need a marriage counselor for retirees although I've never heard of one that deals with quirky partners. I think I'll have a quiet day, puttsing around here. I guess I could do laundry... Naaa, not today, maybe vacuum..Not! Housework in general..another day! Yup, a quiet day for this girl. I did way to much yesterday and I am totally sore from head to toe. It's a muscle and joint thing. These kind of days I wish I had a decent pain killer. Well, rest is best.
I've heard of soooo many people lately having this. I'm wondering if it's not something going around. If so, it's taking it's good old time going away. I have had my furnace/ac checked and cleaned, purchased an air cleaner for my bedroom, cleaned everything I could, started taking vitamins.
The brace did not help. The casing around the nerve was so thickened it was putting heavy pressure on the nerve. This is different. Does not feel like a nerve thing at all. 2 years ago I had a heart attack so maybe it is related. Circulatory? The lump was in my arm before the heart attack. Each time I have mentioned it to doctors......it gets brushed off as irrelevant. One doctor told me to consult a rheumatologist. I haven't done that yet. I am being tested for Lyme's.
Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
I don't trust the neurologist who diagnosed polyneuropathy.- he put me on Elavil.(for nerve pain) I have gone downhill since I saw him last and he has not been much help. I am trying to get into Mass General- they are supposed to have great neurologists if you are in the North East. I live in New Hampshire. I feel so bad for the woman whose water broke and pray for her and her baby. Did you have muscle pain and weakness? My symptoms didn't start until a couple weeks after the flu shot.
Get checked for a pinched nerve in your neck, if you have one , and it sounds real possible, You want to get it adjusted before its to severe.......................See a chiro take my word. Also have your blood pressure checked.
I only go on the weekeneds now with my husband as my neck muscles get so tight that it makes me wheeze and the nerve irritates my vocal cords. Yes, it is a nerve being pinched, compressed or something and it's the creepiest feeling ever. I can't believe I have endured it this long!!! My normally half dead BP is through the roof.....I wonder if months of pain and anxiety could be the reason :)?
