About the Trigeminal Nerve
The trigeminal nerve is a peripheral nerve responsible for sensation in the mouth and taste. A common cause of damage to the trigeminal nerve is the extraction of third molars (wisdom teeth) and injury caused by the placement of dental implants. The trigeminal nerve can also be injured due to certain jaw alignment and tumor removal surgeries as well as by trauma to the face.
