about 3 weeks ago my wisdom tooth surgery was done. it was a complex surgery n during this my jaw muscle was damaged. I cant open my mouth properly bcz of pain in jaw n chin bone. and also half chin n lip skin is senseless there is no feeling.
you have two problems
Lack of proper sensitivity
for the pain
avoid wide opening
muscle relaxants (tizanidine 2mg OD)
antiinflammatory (ibuprofen 600mg tds)
apply warmth to the joint
for the lack of sensitivity
common complication that yout doctor should have warned ypu about. usually the sensitivity returns within 2 to 3 weeks. its because of a bruised nerve. if it takes longer than 1 month, please see your doctor.
In my opinion the problem is not with ur muscle. Infact it seems to be related with ur nerve. May be ur nerve has been damaged during surgery. If its so than the sensation will not return...visit us for further evaulation and exact diagnosis....

Aoa. This usually happens after extraction. Please consult with all of
previous records a fresh OPG. Medication and exercise will help you out of
For mouth openening take Terneline 2mg.
Hi thank you for asking
You have two conditions/side effects that are commonly associated with
complex third molar surgeries.
1. Is called trismus which is limited and painful mouth opening after
surgical extraction. It is primarily due to spasm and inflammation of areas
where there are muscles responsible for opening mouth and thus your
condition of painful mouth opening.
My best recommendation is doing light mouth opening exercises, massage that
side of jaw with warm olive oil and take Tablet Nuberol forte after every
6 hours for the next 10 days..... inshallah you will feel better.
2. Your numbness of the lip issue is a little bit more serious in
nature....and while it has known to happen but usually is rare (almost 1 in
100 complex surgical wisdom tooth extraction). It happens when your dental
nerve Is inadvertently or accidentally damaged during the surgical
procedure. Normally when it happens it is charechterized by numbness of the
lower jaw or lip.
In majority of the cases the numbness should go away is 3 to 6 months as
the nerve reapir process is very slow. But in rare cases it's permanent.
You will need to wait and see if your condition improves.
Normally no medicine is usually beneficial but to help improve nerve reapir
process you can take a Tablet called neuribion once every day for the next
two months and see if it helps. This tablet is just a mixture of vitamin b
complexes that improve nerve health usually and has shown in some cases to
assist in nerve reapir.
Hopefully your problems will resolve soon.
You just need to follow on what is instructed.
Inshallah you will be better.
Do not hesitate to contact me again and tell me about your progress.
Kindly visit any nearest dentist for a complete assessment of your case. If
your nerve was pressed during the surgery. That leads to such symptoms but
these symptoms will be better with the time if lot of damage was not done.
Kindly consult us or aby of the Consultant oral surgeon for an expert advice

pain and limited mouth opening are common symptoms after surgical removal
of tooth. the complain of loss of sensation might vanished after few days
but if it remain persists then this is related to improper LA
administration,the way Local anesthetic injection was given for this you
need to visit dentist near by you for proper clinical examination and
diagnosis. visit us at WESTERN DENTAL HOSPITAL KARACHI
Wisdom tooth surgery often brings complications with it. Trauma to soft tissues and bone is common that heals with antiboitic cover and analgesics if you are sure there is no tooth piece remaining. you can confirm it with the help of dental xray. numbness following the extraction of a lower wisdom tooth is a well known risk of that type of surgery. It very often can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to return to normal. mutivitamin therapy may speed up the process to come back to normal. Occasionally, it never returns to normal. It all has to do with the trauma to your mandibular nerve which lies in your jaw very close to the roots of the wisdom tooth. If that nerve is totally severed, the feeling may never return to your jaw. More often than not, however, there might have been a slight "bruising" of the nerve or simply extreme inflamation, in which case the feeling usually does return.
im so sorry to hear that but sometimes in complicated surgeries, these
problems can happen, but give it time, your symptoms will diminish over
time but give it atleast 4/5 months, after that time if they are gone or
improving that's good but if there is no change after 4/5 months at all
then you should visit a dentist
Hopefully ur problem is solved as 2 was are gone .if still it persists u can update ur question
you should go to a experienced dental surgeon contact 042-32591427, for
