Tingling or numbness sometimes results from nicking if a nerve during a local anesthetic infection given during treatment. Have u received any dental treatment in that region recently?
Wisdom teeth cause numbness only when the impinge on a nerve. Moreover, the area that you describe the numbness to be affecting, does not match the location of wisdom teeth.
Another common reason I can think of is a dental infection, an abscess that is involving a nerve and thus evoking those symptoms.
If these common symptoms are ruled out, then more uncommon ones are lesions of proper neurial origin. To confirm these, you will first need a dental X ray to rule out dental cause, and then a MRI to diagnose nerve issues.
