Default Wisdom teeth tongue numbness for weeks?

Hello! I got my wisdom teeth out about four or five weeks ago and my tongue is still numb! My dr said that they hit a nerve in my jaw which made my tongue numb. He said that it will take a couple months to heal. Has this happened to anyone? Or is it just me? I tend to bite my tongue a lot while I eat and I can feel bumps on my tongue because of it. Is there any way I can stop biking my tongue?

I had my wisdom teeth out 19 yrs ago and I still can't feel parts of my chin. No way to know...and they realize this and get you to sign that detailed waiver beforehand. But yeah, feeling in the tongue is a lot more critical than in the chin so I hope it comes back for you.

After I had mine out, I had some small numbness on the lower part of my face on one side. It did take weeks to heal.

I'm glad that this has happened to other people besides me! It seems like numbness like this is rare.

I had a filling in May to fix a cracked tooth and still have a partially numb tongue.

When my dentist was injecting the freezing, my tongue started to feel weird. It felt frozen for a good two weeks afterwards. During that time, I called my dentist and was told it would eventually go away.

It's gotten better, but it's still not like it was beforehand.

When we had my granny tooth removed the dentist told us that her tongue will be numb for like 4-5 months. She is fine now and all her numbness has gone. If you are really worried you can visit a dentist and just checkout things for your satisfaction.

I had one of mine out years ago in my lower jaw it took about 7 months before the skin in the middle of my chin had any sensation.

I was warned of nerve damage and where it could effect, my jaw being broken etc and actually thought I was lucky.

Lower molars particularly wisdom teeth have roots near the nerve supply in the jaw. In some cases the nerves run in between the roots. Either way if such a tooth is taken out the nerve can be traumatised at best or damaged at worse. You won't no which it is for up to a year.

Edited to say: There is no way they would have operated on you without you signing a waiver. There may be issues if they didn't mention side effects and complications.

However some people don't listen when told this as any sort of procedure/medical appointment can stress people. I've had to accompany people to medical appointments simply cause they could not hear what the doctor/surgeon was saying due to stress.
