Inferior Alveolar Nerve Damage Symptoms
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?
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.
