    Dental Implants
    Shin10 posted:
    2 weeks ago i had all my teeth pulled and had 2 implants in the bottom to help with dentures. Had complications and had alot of bone graphing and membrane added. It has been an awful experience, and now I have numbness in my bottom lip and chin. I am wondering if anyone has had this problem.

    Hi Shin10,

    I am sorry your surgery was more involved than you anticipated.

    Please talk with your doctor about the numbness. Similar to lower wisdom teeth removal, paresthesia (numbness) can occur when the nerve is disturbed.

    Our Oral Health Community may offer more member or expert response, please repost your concerns there.

    Hope you feel better soon,
