Numb lip and teeth...

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: cy1991  (8 years ago)
Hi... i'm originally from Canada, and before i left last Wednesday, i had my dentist start on a root canal which he will finish up when i get back in December. i was in a lot of pain until Saturday night, but thank G-d that has gone. However, starting Friday i believe, i have had this awful numbness in half my lower right lip and four lower teeth on the front right side of my bottom set of teeth. (the root canal was on the lower back right). the teeth are hurting me and the lip feels absolutely odd and at times also hurts. it is driving me absolutely insane!
what is going on? and is there anything i can do for some relief??

It was not a good idea to leave on a trip so soon after a root canal was started. You cannot wait until December to have it finished. It will either get reinfected or the tooth will fracture.

The numbness could be from an anesthetic needle strike on the nerve, or it could be from files out the end of the root(s) on the root canal. The latter possibility is extremely rare.

Sad to say, you need to return to Canada to have this project completed, or pay somebody where you are to investigate what happened and complete the procedure. Yes, the latter will cost you more money.
