Usually does occur after wisdom tooth removal specially when the tooth is closer to the nerve. If its recently done procedure, get it evaluated by the dental surgeon who performed it and few injections might be required. Mean while start with Neurobion forte twice daily for 4 weeks. (best prescribed after evaluating the extent of loss of sensation). At times loss of sensation could be transient, but negligence can lead to persistent problem. Take care

This type of injury to nerve is common with Windom tooth removal.sensation recovery time varies from 1 month to 2 years. So u can expect some improvement till 2 years.sensation recovers usually in all the patients as its a stretch injury. U can start some multivitamins with cynocobalamine for long term. That might help. Hope to have your sensation back soon. Take care not to bite your tongue till then.
