Whole Body Aches After Removing Wisdom Teeth

One exception - I have seen one case when the buccal fat pad was violated & was removed unilaterally with slight assym. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Nerve issue: The nerves to the upper front teeth run along the nasal floor and drop to the teeth through a small foramen behind them so it would be hard to injure these nerves with wisdom teeth extraction.
