Don’t Entrust Nerve Repair To Anyone Else
Nerves are fibers that transmit impulses to your brain, enabling you to experience sensations such as temperature, pressure, and pain. When your oral nerves are damaged, you can lose partial or even full sensation (though not the ability to move the affected area) to parts of your mouth, depending upon the severity of the damage. Dr. Eric Baker and Dr. Tim Betita fully understand how important nerves are and have the extensive training required to perform nerve repair surgery with the utmost care and exceptional outcomes—right here in our Dana Point, CA office. Those favorable outcomes are only possible if nerve repair is undertaken through oral surgery in a timely manner. Research has shown that nerves repaired within 90 days after injury have a significantly higher chance for full sensation recovery than those that are repaired after 90 days. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to have any nerve-related issues addressed immediately.
