The Composition Of The Right Tooth Changes And The Edges Of The Tongue Look Bumpy?
Hello, I just dislocated my right jaw and pressured my tongue by the arrangement of my right tooth and made the nerves in my tongue damaged and the edges of my tongue look bumpy. numbness on the tongue sometimes still feels a little … My question, is this due to the arrangement of my right tooth that has changed from its original position? Can my tooth structure return to normal? Or is this because the nerves in my tongue have not completely healed? Thank you for your time, healthy greetings
Hello Joshua, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
The edge of the tongue that looks bumpy can be caused by several things, for example abnormalities in the oral cavity, can be caused by trauma or injury, or dislocation of the jaw as you experience that causes changes in the composition of the teeth, can also be caused by missing teeth. This causes the tongue to fill the gaps in the teeth and adjust to the shape of the new oral cavity. Can also occur in people who often have difficulty breathing, such as asthma, tonsillitis, etc. so that the body makes adjustments by moving the jaw forward so that the tongue becomes enlarged and looks bumpy. This symptom can also be found in people with disorders of the spleen, digestive disorders, sleep disorders such as sleep apnea / snoring, and vitamin B complex deficiency.
Numbness in the tongue is usually caused due to nerve damage due to trauma (as you experience), stroke, vitamin B12 deficiency and others so that it interferes with the delivery of sense impulses in the brain that cause numbness. However, it can also be caused by dry mouth (xerofthalmia), after consuming food / drinks that are too hot / cold / spicy, alcohol, cigarettes, or after consuming certain drugs.
If you feel the complaint is disturbing you should immediately consult a doctor. To restore the arrangement of the teeth as before, you should consult your dentist again. The doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed such as X-rays, and others.
You should avoid things that can aggravate complaints, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and eating food / drinks that are too hot / cold / spicy. Always keep the oral cavity clean, clean teeth regularly at least 2 times a day, clean the tongue with a special tongue brush, maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat nutritious foods, meet fluid needs, and exercise regularly.
Thus, hopefully useful.
