Question by  kay (20)

Could wisdom tooth removal cause tongue pain?


Answer by  Spazman667 (259)

In fact it can due to the fact that wisdom teeth removal involves one's entire mouth since the teeth are located in the back of the mouth.

In some cases, yes, it could. The dentist may have bumped into your tongue with the tools used while removing the teeth, which can be quite difficult, depending on the situation. If the pain lasts more than a day or two, contact your dentist to see if there is cause for concern.

The possible complications of any operation for removing wisdom tooth include an unexpected reaction to the anaesthetic or excessive bleeding whic can cause numbness in the lower lip or tongue.
