How long should I have numbness after wisdom tooth extraction?
I had wisdom tooth extraction. It has been 1 month since, and I still have numbness in my lower lip area. It appears I have some nerve damage. The questions are how long should I expect this feeling to last? And Should I contact another dentist or oral surgeon like miami wisdom tooth extraction? Is this permanent?
Who took out the Wisdom Tooth? An Oral Surgeon or a Dentist? That would make a big difference in answering your question. Normally an Oral Surgeon removes Wisdom Teeth, not a Dentist, due to the problem of impacted roots and other problems they are able to see on x-rays, and other problems that can come up during extraction.

Just thinking about this logically, I would say anything more than 24-48 hours is not normal. I did a bit of research online and found that usually the effect will last one HOUR, so if I were you I could call the office where you had the surgery and schedule a follow up.
