Hi everyone- I got my wisdom teeth out last Tuesday and ever since then have been experiencing a tingling numbness in my lower front teeth and from the side of my bottom lip down. My oral surgeon says this is normal- apparently the lower wisdom teeth are close to the "mandibular nerve" which controls the sensations in this area of my face. He told me to wait it out and it will get better hopefully by the end of the week. The tingling (and resulting annoyance/pain/discomfort) is getting stronger every day so I'm thinking this means that sensation in the area is starting to come back? Is anyone on here a dentist, or someone who has been through this before? My dentists office is closed at this hour and this tingling discomfort is driving me insane- it just will not go away!!! Ugh- Unfortunately the painkillers I was on started giving me stomach problems so I'm currently only taking Tylenol and it's really not doing anything. Any info from someone who knows or has been through this would be great!!! Any ideas on how to help reduce the pain would be great too- I've tried a heating pad and it didn't do much. Thanks!!!
