If nerve from a lower wisdom tooth extraction isn't damaged, is there any reason paresthesia would be permanent?

Paraesthesis: I've seen a number of patients who presented with paresthesia. Some never had their symptoms reversed, others partially felt the lip and tissue around her Mandibular teeth and some notice the paresthesia disappearing altogether.
