What is the cure/treatment for nerve damage caused by oral surgery?
Answers: NERVE REGENERATION TAKES UP TO 12 MONTHS TO START..YOU WILL KNOW WHEN SENSATION IS COMING BACK WHEN YOU GET THE PINS AND NEEDLES SENSATION IN THAT AREA. IF THE NERVE HAS BEEN TOTALLY CUT, IT WILLNOT REGENERATE UNLESS IT WAS SURGICALLY ATTACHED, BUT THIS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO DO AS THE NERVES ARE LIKE HAIR FIBRES (SO THIN). ASK YOUR DENTIST IF IT WAS JUST DAMAGED OR CUT SO THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH.
I don't believe that it will go away. There's a nerve that travels along your lower jaw and the roots of the lower teeth sometimes lay right on top of it. When the teeth are extracted, the nerve gets damaged and leaves that numb feeling. Unfortunately, it's a side effect of oral surgery.
Hopefully you can eat okay without chewing your tongue. If your that worried, I'd make an appt with the Dr that removed them, maybe they can give a more clear answer. But again, I've never heard of the nerve repairing itself. Sorry.
