Are thereany medications for trigeminal sensory pain in left side face/head after horizontally-impacted wisdom tooth extraction & lingual nerve damage?

Several. We use different medications to help alleviate nerve pain. Amitryptilline is an old-fashioned anti-depressant that we never use for depression any more - it helps. Seizure medications like gabapentin, carbamezapine and valproic acid help. You may need more than one type of medication and sometimes you find out what works only by trial and error. See a neurologist for treatment. Read more...

Few days only! While everyone heals differently, pain from wisdom teeth extractions should be subsiding after a week. The primary culprit, in an otherwise healthy person, is a high oral bacteria count. If people don't floss on a daily basis their mouths are chronically infected. And... An open boney socket becomes a cesspool that won't heal. Floss daily and have your oral surgeon treat your any dry sockets! Read more...
