Can't do a thing except wait. Feeling usually comes back within 6 months. If it does not come back within one year, it probably will not and microsurgery to rejoin nerves is the only solution.

Patience, patience, patience. It takes time for the body to heal.

"These crowns?" I thought you had teeth pulled on the side where it is numb, not crowned. Don't know without examining you. It is very probably a completely separate issue than the nerve numbness.

Ok here is a list i had fixed at 1 time.. both wisdom teeth on bottom cut out back molar on each side 7 fillings to crowns on the side that is not dead. I have went from taking the cocktail of 2 ibu and 2 tyl twice a day to 2 advil morning and night. the 14th of this month will be a month since i have had this surgery. The ibu immediatley sooths the pain but by bed time i can feel it trying to come back underneath these crowns. the dentist stated that the cavity was very deep on the top and that maybe the nerve is just agitated. GOD I HOPE SO. My feeling on the right side of my mouth is just annoying and i hope it comes back. I am very worried about a nerve being severed during surgery and that this is permanent. Im just curious about this pain under these two crowns should the pain have already left or do i keep taking the Amoxil and IBU and hope it eventually goes away or do I just go tell her to pull this tooth on top that i paid a thousand dollars to put on a crown. Did i just have to much dental work done at once?????????? Sorry I vented

You probably are facing a root canal on one of the teeth that are crowned. This is completely separate from the numbness problem.

Yes, that was probably too much dental treatment to have at one time.
