Lower Lip And Chin Still Numb After Pulling Molars 2 Days Ago?
I’m incha. I just pulled out my lower molars. It has already passed 2 days but my lower lip and chin are still numb huh. I wonder why? Until when does this numbness disappear?
Tooth extraction is done if there is an indication, for example a tooth shake, tooth decay that cannot be repaired anymore, and impact. Did you get anesthesia / anesthesia before being revoked? When a tooth is extracted, the dentist will generally administer anesthetic to minimize pain during the extraction.
Tooth extraction itself is a safe action, but just like other medical procedures, tooth extraction also has the risk of complications. Some complications after tooth extraction include:
Disorders or injuries to the trigeminal nerve that cause complaints of numbness in the tongue, chin, lips, gums, and teeth. Complaints of numbness can be temporary for several weeks, but can also be permanent
Dry socket that causes pain and causes the healing process to be delayed
Do you get medicines from the dentist? You should take medicine from the dentist according to your dentist's recommendation. Furthermore, if the drug has run out but the lips and chin are still numb, I suggest that you regain control with your dentist so that further evaluation and examination can be done to ascertain the cause of your numbness. Furthermore, the dentist can provide further treatment for you.
In the meantime, you can compress numbed areas with alternately warm and cold compresses, consume healthy and nutritious foods that contain lots of B vitamins, and take care of your oral health.
Hope it helps you,
