It happens...: ... and usually resolves on its own, but your surgeon needs to know about this post operative complication. Medications or therapies might be indicated to help your healing. Please call and explain your symptoms.

Paresthesia: is a rarer complication of lower dental implant placement. See your surgeon for post-op evaluation and a proper parasthesia treatment as early as possible. The sooner rather than later for a better outcome. Good luck.

Nerve problem: Sounds like a minor nerve injury. Most resolve with time. Make sure you let oral surgeon know about this.

Parasthesia: I'm sure your Oral Surgeon explained the possibility of Parasthesia to you. Call the Specialist's office and schedule a post-surgical visit to discuss what the future may hold for you.
