Delayed Paresthesia of Inferior Alveolar Nerve After Extraction of Mandibular Third Molar: Case Report and Possible Etiology
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Until not so distant past, in our country it was considered that endodontic treatment of the teeth in all forms of chronic periodontitis should be completed by forcing the filling material outside the borders of the apex of the treated tooth. Nowadays, this approach is seriously reconsidered.0Comments 0Citations

- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: After an inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) injury, the onset of altered sensation usually begins immediately after surgery. However, it sometimes begins after several days, which is referred to as delayed paresthesia. The authors considered three different etiologies that likely produce inflammation along the nerve trunk and cause delayed paresthesia: compression of the clot, fibrous reorganization of the clot, and nerve trauma caused by bone fragments during clot organization. The aim of this article was to evaluate the etiology of IAN delayed paresthesia, analyze the literature, present a case series related to three different causes of this pathology, and compare delayed paresthesia with the classic immediate symptomatic paresthesia.0Comments 1Citation
