Posted on 4/10/2018 by Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group
Do you feel some pain in your jaw area? That can be some nerve damage and you might want to seek help from professional. There are times that jaw pain is unbearable and very dangerous.
Sometimes, antibiotics, painkillers, and therapies won't work anymore and removal of nerves from the jaw can be required. Dentists will diagnose the problem and will most likely recommend treating of the affected nerve in the jaw or removal.
Extreme pain can be associated with the complications after infections and other dental surgeries or procedures. Some symptoms may include facial pain, jaw alignment issues, ringing sound in the ears, and jaw locking.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, you can be suffering from nerve damage. Here are the times where dentists may need to remove some nerves from your jaw.
If you have an ongoing pain in your facial area, you might have Trigeminal Neuralgia. This is a health issue concerning certain nerves in your face. The trigeminal nerves on each side of your face can sometimes be irritated causing pain in your jaw because these nerves are responsible for your jaw motion.
The common symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia are the electric shock-like pain in the jaw and cheeks, numbness and tingling sensation on your face, and some toothaches.
Nerve damage can also be associated with wisdom tooth extraction. Dental Paresthesia is the complication of wisdom tooth extraction, simple tooth extractions, dental injections, and other dental procedures involving the gums and jaws.
The lingual, mandibular, and maxillary nerves are the common nerves that are affected. If you have Dental Parathesia, you might also be experiencing some pain and tingling sensation in your jaw area and face. Surgical repair and removal are necessary if nerve damage still persists.
