Inferior alveolar nerve damage which doctor repear this thing?

Good question

Neuropathy
I have seen many cases of this injury . Rarely , an oro-maxillofacial surgeon can repair damage. Most often treatment is targeted injection ,by surgeon or pain management specialist,and anti-neuropathic drugs, like lyrica.

I got inferior alveolar nerve damage 6 weeks ago Sensation is back but my lip and gums still feel tight and heavy Is this the last thing to come back?

Yes...6 Months

Nerve_injury
It is good that sensation is beginning to return. This is a very good sign that the nerve is repairing from the trauma. However, it can take up to 6 months and possibly even a little bit longer for full sensation to return.

How long takes a alveolar nerve damage to heal?

Nerve damage heal

Nerve
There are different type of nerve damage. If it is just demyelinating injury (damage the peel of nerve), it would need a few weeks to heal after the etiology removal. If axonal damage, the nerve need regrowth from spine about 2-3 mm per day if the pathway soft tissue (frame of nerve) is still intact. It is almost impossible to full recovery nerve function if both axon and frame are messed up.

After dental implant surgery and my inferior alveolar nerve injured... i'ts been about 3 1\2 months and I'm starting to get some of the feeling back, ?

That's good news

Injuries
Much of the likelihood of getting feeling back from this type of injury is dependent on the extent of the damage. Hopefully you will get more and more of the ability to feel as time goes on. You may even get 100% of the feeling back and I hope that you do. If not then hopefully you will manage.

I have undergone an extraction for my lower, first pre-molar.An inferior alveolar nerve block was given to me but since,there's pain at the injection site and reduced mouth opening. What should I do?

Not uncommon

Advil-motrin-aleve
Occasionally, for this type of injection, the muscles may go into spasm and there is also some local inflammation which produces the symptoms that you describe. Take some OTC pain medication such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve or what you normally take for a headache. Warm rinses and external moist heat may help as well. This should pass shortly. Call your own dentist if still concerned.

Provided the nerve was not severed It may take up to six to eight months to regain the sensation and feeling back following healing of the nerve.
