It was pulled a month ago approximately and I've had teeth sensitivity, tongue tingles, lips at times, and the teeth feel numb. The pain comes and goes. I am 51 and had my wisdom teeth removed, teeth are in good shape, have had a cleaning recently. What is this pain from? Is it a root or a bone spur? I am seeing my dentist tomorrow but am concerned.

Difficult to say. Could be an unrelated problem. Would need more information with an x-ray. If it was your wisdom teeth that were removed, and they were close to a nerve, the nerve could have been bruised or damaged. If this is the case, you have to give it time. Sometimes it can take months for the feeling to come back and the parasthesia to disappear.
