I had a lower wisdom tooth extracted about a month ago and I have damage to my inferior alveolar nerve. The left half of my lower lip, teeth, and chin are numb, but painful, if that makes sense. The dentist said it could heal within weeks, months, years, or possibly..never. There's no way of telling, apparently.
Has anyone suffered from this? If so, did you regain feeling, and after how long?
