Yes...6 Months: 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. ...Read more

Nerve damage after recent dental implants (Inferior Alveolar Nerve)?

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 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?

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

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
