Nerve Damage (Definition)

A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

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 more

How long takes a alveolar nerve damage to heal?

How long takes a alveolar nerve damage to heal?

Nerve damage heal: 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. ...Read more

Is it possible to manually compress the inferior alveolar nerve during sleep causing temporary pins and needles in lip and chin?

Nearly impossible: I studied & intensely examined the trajectory of the Inf. Alv. N. in order to answer this question. Look, I am of the opinion that ALL is possible given how far Donald Trump has gotten in these elections but I gotta tell 'ya- for just sleeping on your jaw to COMPRESS this nerve your mandible'd have to be made out of pretty soft plastic!

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?

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: 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. ...Read more

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: 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. ...Read more
