Almost 1 year numbness of left lower lip and chin after wisdom teeth removal?

What should I do? Is it possible this is permanent?

The use of an ND/YAG laser has been shown in some cases to reverse the effects of long term parathesia (numbness). It can take several months of treatment to work. This has been replicated not only in our laser periodontal office but several others around the US.
