These things are unpredictable. Usually the feeling comes back within 6 months. A very small percentage of the time, it never comes back. There is nothing you can do except wait.

Just because it happened did not mean your dentist did a thing wrong. Sometimes it is just the luck of the draw.

If it does not come back after 6 month, some surgeons do microsurgery to try to reconnect the nerve endings, but this is difficult and rarely done.
