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

Broke jaw have nerve damage to the inferior alveolar nerve bout 9 weeks ago most of numbnes gone but lip and chin tightness remain , how much longer?

Broke jaw have nerve damage to the inferior alveolar nerve  bout 9 weeks ago most of numbnes gone but lip and  chin tightness remain , how much longer?

Depends: Depends on the severity of the injury. In this case sounds like shearing or crush injury but sometimes if it's stretch with no damage to the axon it may recover quickly. Otherwise, human axon growth rates are 1 mm/day in small nerves and 5 mm/day in large nerves. If there is no way the nerve would reconnect then maybe permanent but best to check with a maxillofacial surgeon. Best of luck! ...Read more

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

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 (naproxen) 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

Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...Read more
