Lip and chin are numb after wisdom tooth extrtation. Will it correct itself?
I had only one, left lower wisdom tooth pulled last Wednesday. My chin and lip on that side are numb. Will this correct itself in time? It is constantly tingling every day like it is trying to come back.

Also, I am 34; a bit older than most people when they get a wosdom tooth out.

Has anyone had this problem, and how long did it take to go away? I heard in rare cases that it might be permanent.

Josh (elite09G8)
i had all 4 extracted in 15 min last fall and remembering that he said this could feel like that for up to 6 months half year
i'm now 19 and he also said i had little chance of this happening because the roots were not fully developed. also if they had to crack the tooth and split it instead of pulling it this would problem happen to me but they didn't so i had no symptoms besides the scaring and not being able it eat for over a day
i say give the oral surgeon a call or maybe your dentist(who every did it) in about a month if it feels the same and ask this if it's normal
wait don't you have to go back about 1 week later to see that it has heeled correctly And that the stitches are gone??

no it should probably go away. if it wouldnt i think the dentist would tell u

Tamer Michiel DDS
This usually resolves by itself but can take time. It's a good idea to let your dentist know. We can sometimes map the area affected so we can track progress. If you feel improvement already it's a great sign.

I had my wisdom teeth out last year, age 15. I had four impacted teeth (wich means they were sideways) so they numbed me up quite a bit. My numbness only lasted about 24 hours. I'd say if its been over a week since you had surgury and the numbness is still there, its probably not a good thing.

I would talk to your doctor, or surgon who removed the teeth. You could have some permanant nerve damage in your lip and chin-obviously not a good thing.

I just had my left lower wisdom tooth (and the molar it grew into) removed 14 days ago too and I am having the same issue except that the chin area feels like I am getting stung by a bee every second or so. It's not fun and its making it hard to get a good night sleep. Nothing takes the pain away and pain meds only take the edge off. My oral surgeon said it could take months to go away but most likely should clear up in a week or two.

It is normal, especially with older folks like you and me (I'm 38). The prime time to get wisdom teeth removed is in your late teens because the teeth are still soft and the roots haven't matured or hardened yet. By the time you get to you mid-30's the teeth are rock hard and the roots are pretty much anchored into your jaw bone. There is also a nerve that runs along your bottom jaw called the mandibular nerve and it often runs real close to those bottom wisdom teeth. If that nerve gets whacked during the procedure then you can expect numbness and tingling, and maybe even a painful electrical-shock like feeling, in your chin and lower lip.

So any parents of teens out there that might be reading this.....get your teenagers wisdom teeth taken care of. Don't neglect them like my parents did. You will only cause more issues for your kids when they get older and it could cost them other teeth as well.

Yeah...that will go away. I was 30 when I had mine taken out (I had all four of them done). It feels weird and then it's usually better after a couple of days max.

If not, then you call your dentist or doctor about it and they'll help ya out...

If I were you I'd call the dentists office and ask.

Being numb a week after surgery does not seem normal but every case is different.

I know this one
I've Had several tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removed. Also, several root canals and numbness has always disappeared by next morning. He may have struck a nerve, damaging it, with the needle. Nerve

Had mine out and the same thing happened dont worry its normal just try to eat soft food like Icecream, or bananas what ever you do dont eat anything hot it will burn the skin in that spot and they will have to go back in and put some cream stuff on it hurts like hell trust me i no

it should get back to normal in about a week or so he my have used a little too much Novocaine if it does not get better call the dentist and tell him what is going on
