Question:
Numbness caused by implants? My husband has had implants put in 10 months ago in his lower jaw.

It was quite a struggle for the dentist to get them in. Right after the surgery my husband felt something was wrong. Since then he has numbness and tingling in his lip and below.

He had several pictures taken and even consulted a dutch professor but it seems nothing can be done. He is getting pretty desperate because he feels it is affecting his whole life.

Please can you tell us if in the U.S. there is a treatment for this? ...Visitor from Netherlands

Answer:
Were the implants removed immediately? Is the numbness on one side or both sides?

Have you consulted with a neurosurgeon? Time is of the essence. The longer the paresthesia is present, the more likely the damage is permanent.

There are micro neurosurgical procedures that can be performed depending on the extent and duration of the damage.
