nerve damage

Is there treament for lingual nerve damage that was bumped during the extraction of
a wisdom tooth? The surgeon said the tooth was deeper than he thought and had to
finish the extraction but bumped the nerve in doing so. It's been 4 years.

Unfortunately, if you have not felt any difference by now , the chances of recovery are near zero. This is an unfortunate possibility of third molar extractioins.
