Oral gum nerve damage from wisdom tooth extraction. Can Botox injections help?

Botox is not indicated to treat swelling, numbness, or pain
Botox Can Help with Pain
Hopefully you are in early recovery and things will continue to improve with time and not require any treatment. Not sure when the surgery was performed.
Antinflammatories such as Advil will help swelling and pain.

I have had several patients who have complained of the very same problem and unfortunately nothing has helped them. If you find that Botox or something else helps please keep us posted. Wish you the best, Dr. Green
