Following extraction of an upper molar and wisdom tooth, I have suffered from miserable coated tongue, a sensation of dryness, and loss some of sensation in my upper lip. Could this be the result of any nerve damage from the extractions?
Highly unlikely from the extraction to get loss of sensation to the upper lip.
The dry mouth and sensation could be an issue with the salivary gland which is on the cheek near the teeth in question. Or you may have a fungal infection (perhaps a side effect of antibiotics if you are taking them).
