There are always risks associated with this procedure, but these risks are rare and will likely be temporary if nerve injury occurs.
Any surgical removal has the potential of complications, including but not limited to: infection, pain, delayed healing, numbness to lip/chin and/or tongue, and damage to nearby structures including teeth or sinuses.
Although rare, numbness to the lip, chin and or tongue, possibly including the loss of taste, can follow the removal of lower wisdom teeth. If numbness does occur, if frequently, although not always, resolves or improves within 6 weeks to 3 months.
