  • Sometimes after surgery, nerve parasthesia occurs but normally it recovers within 6 months of surgery. But in your case it looks like that permanent damage has beend one to nerve and hence then numbness of lip is there. So it seems that it is for life long but still you can take a second opinion from your oral surgeon. for more info on dental health you can browse our website...
