Customer Question

Hello . I had a wisdom tooth extracted and 2 months later a painful bone spur occurred on the inside of my gums( not a piece of tooth) ..The dentist lasered it off...The next day I started feeling a tingling over my entire body ( toes to ears) .It will not go away after a month..Any chance this is related to the dental work?

Medically and dentally speaking, no.

This would not be related to the dental work.

Your medical doctor needs to look into other possible causes of this, which is called paresthesia.

Such as:

iron deficiency


liver or kidney problems

heavy metal toxicity



b vitamin deficienies


hidden infection or malignancy

See an internal medicine doctor at this point.
