Unlikely: The nerves most at risk for injury, especially when the roots of the wisdom teeth are fully grown, are the lower jaw nerves that give feeling to the lower jaw, teeth and lower lip. The nerve that causes movement of the facial muscles is not located close to the wisdom teeth but could conceivably receive pressure during support of the lower jaw. I have not yet seen such an injury though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Question ?: If you have damage, see the Surgeon. Sometimes this can be helped by removing the implant if it is impinging on the nerve or the proximal space. Sometimes it is inflammation and can be resolved with time and medication. See the Oral Surgeon and get a CT scan to evaluate. It is a risk and occasionally happens, but most often is resolved. Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Are thereany medications for trigeminal sensory pain in left side face/head after horizontally-impacted wisdom tooth extraction & lingual nerve damage?
Several: We use different medications to help alleviate nerve pain. Amitryptilline is an old-fashioned anti-depressant that we never use for depression any more - it helps. Seizure medications like gabapentin, carbamezapine and valproic acid help. You may need more than one type of medication and sometimes you find out what works only by trial and error. See a neurologist for treatment. ...Read more

3 wisdom tooth extractrd and a molar tooth bone grafted also 6 weeks ago. Can flossing shift teeth positions?
Possible but Rare: Root canals are severing of neural tissue. Trigeminal neuralgia involves neural tissues of the fifth nerve gone bad, sending unwanted feedback of pain when stimulated. Most teeth with root canals don't cause this and there is never a direct cause and effect that ties trigeminal neuralgia to the root canal procedure. Some root canals do fail and cause bone cavitations and residual pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possible ?: Possible? Yes. Likely? No. In the hands of an experienced dentist and with proper precautions, the risk of this is very small. Any time a drill is used on teeth, there is always a risk of inflammation and irreversible damage to the nerve of the tooth. More often, the tooth would have required root canal therapy anyway due to previous decay or dental treatment. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Would root canal treatment on # 11or # 14 molar teeth touches the nerve or cause any issue with sinus.I am hesitant to do procedure. Feedback please.
Not likely: Root canal treatment is meant to eliminate an infection found in and around the tooth. This infection can have a negative effect on the sinus. Rct can remove an infection that began in the tooth and spread to the sinus area. It is highly unlikely that this treatment will have a detrimental effect on the sinus. For specific details about your case it would be best to consult an endodontist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Nerve inflamed: It's quite common to have some sensitivity following the placement of a filling. Drilling and filling a tooth is actually a micro-surgical procedure on the tooth. The nerve becomes temporarily inflamed and may cause sensitivity. If this does not resolve within a few days, see your dentist to determine if something else needs to be done for the tooth (bite adjustment or something else)? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pulp Tester: I think you are asking how a dentist would test the vitality on the teeth of a person who is grinding, to see if the trauma from grinding has caused and of the teeth to become non-vital. If so, the answer is a pulp-tester, an instrument that imparts a small electrical current on the questionable tooth. If the tooth feels pain, it is vital; if not, it is non-vital. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My bottom wisdom teeth are impacted and are near a major nerve. What is the best course of action?
Discuss w/ surgeon.: It sounds like you are saying that the lower wisdom teeth are located near the inferior alveolar nerve. This nerve runs into your jaw and exits near your premolars (bicuspids) and runs to your lower lip. If this nerve is severed, then you will lose the feeling to one of the sides of your lower lip. Discuss all risks and benefits with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I would recommend seeing a dentist as soon as possible to diagnose the condition and treat appropriately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
