I feel your daughter' pain. I have the same problem. Whole left side of tongue is numb after wisdom teeth extraction. It been 5 days so far... Did your daughter ever recover? Was surgery needed and/or successful? Also doctor, could you recommend any specialist in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas? I need someone I can trust.  Thank you, Stacey
