I got 3 of my wisdom teeth out on Wednesday.
The surgeon did talk to me about associated risks eg nerve damage etc.
Today the inside of my lip and bottom gum are almost numb and a bit tingly.
Is this a common reaction after surgery or is due to nerve damage. It's Sunday so I'll wait till tomorrow to give the dr a call.
Anyone else have this?

A question about wisdom teeth removal
05-05-2013 08:42 #2
I'm still too scared to get my wisdom teeth out - so brave of you!
My DP had his out last year and he had some ongoing numbness in his tongue and lips for ages. It has resolved now and from memory the dentist said it was too be expected.
I hope you get some more knowledge answers and some feeling back soon

Thanks for the reply.
I was such a chicken to get it done but it wasn't as bad as I thought. But this numbness is frustrating me so I'm definitely going to call. My entire chin and inside of lip feels funny.

Call your doctor tomorrow, but is more than likely some nerve damage or swelling from the surgery.
Your mouth is prised wide open for this procedure, and depends on if they needed to do any cuts as well.
The feeling should come back. It can be due to bruising and swelling as well.
Nerves can sometimes take 18 months to regenerate.

It does sound fairly normal, but remember to be gentle with yourself when you are eating. It is really easy to bite the inside of your lip or cheek when it is numb or tingly, and you can end up with a nasty mouth ulcer.
