Dental trauma happens when your dental procedure goes awry. It is normal to experience mild swelling and slight bleeding post a dental extraction or surgery. In rare cases, tooth extraction procedures may go wrong leading to an impact on the surrounding gum and teeth. A tooth extraction trauma appears in the form of the numbness of the lip, tongue, face, gum, and chin. There will be discomfort and perhaps a sharp pain in the face or jaw. Other symptoms that are likely to occur include headache, drooling, fever, etc. However, visiting the right clinic and seeking the help of an expert professional can only keep such traumas at bay.
