Jaw surgery and numbness

Hello, it’s me again.

So I’ve done the cold test in the meantime, and I don’t feel anything. I only have feeling in the lower teeth. Is this a bad sign?

I often feel like somebody hit my teeth with a hammer, especially the anterior teeth. Is this normal?

greetings,

Hello,

Eight months ago, I underwent a BiMax operation. Unfortunately, my upper jaw is still numb. Feeling is slowly returning on one side, but unfortunately, not on the other side. For example, when I poke this side with tweezers or move over it with ice, I don’t feel anything. Every now and then, I experience a burning sensation above the anterior teeth.

The numb side of the upper jaw really restricts my ability to speak. How long does a nerve regeneration take? Should I still be hopeful that the situation will improve? Which nerves could be damaged? I can feel the palate. Can a neurologist help me?

Thank you very much in advance for your answer.

Good evening,

Thank you very much for your answer. I turned to you because unfortunately, my surgeon has been “keeping mum.” I think I should mention that I can feel the upper lip and the cheek, but unfortunately, not the upper jaw. Do you think I should contact a neurologist as well?

Kind regards,

Hello,

Yes, he is very uncommunicative. Maybe there is a dysaesthesia of the tongue?

I still have one question about the dysaesthesia, however. In the encyclopedia, it’s described as “discomfort.” However, I can no longer feel anything. I could tap my upper jaw on that side with a needle or press my upper jaw into a bed of nails, and it wouldn’t hurt. Will I not experience any pain even when my dentist drills into my teeth?

Kind regards,
