I had my right lower wisdom tooth removed 3 days ago...it was vertically impacted. The surgeon removed the tooth and told me my nerve under the tooth was in tact, but he felt I would experience temporary loss of sensation resulting from the surgery. I am feeling numbness and discomfort (not pain) in my front lower jaw and my chin and lower lip from midline to my outer right lip area. It just seems strange to me that I'm feeling discomfort in this area more so than the actual area where the impacted tooth was removed... is this normal???? Or is the numbness toward the front of my lower jaw simply due to the nerve involvement??
Appreciate feedback, Frank
