How Can Dental Extractions Cause Nerve Damage? - by Periodontist Dr Vadivel, DDS, Dallas

How the removal of a wisdom tooth could cause nerve pain. The good news is that it is rather rare, but it does happen. Your lower wisdom teeth are located near a nerve called the lingual nerve. It passes near the rear teeth and provides sensory information to your brain for your tongue, lower lip, and your chin. It also sends taste messages. As wisdom teeth grow, their roots become longer. This can place their roots very close to the nerve, making it difficult for the dentist to remove the tooth without also damaging the nerve. On occasion, a dentist will injure the nerve by putting the anesthetic needle through it, place pressure on it when moving the gums aside, or when removing jaw bone to get the tooth out easier. Dental tools may also nick the nerve, or there may be bleeding that places pressure on it. It is also possible to severe the nerve. When damage to the nerve occurs, the patient is going to experience a change. Their taste may change, they may have difficulty eating or drinking, and even their speech may suddenly become difficult. They will often experience a lot of pain. Fortunately, nerve pain usually goes away after eight weeks. If it persists after six months, it is likely permanent. Four types of treatment are available to help. Don't forget, though, that this kind of incident is rather rare.
