The Tongue Is Numb After The Installation Of Dentures.?
My tongue feels numb somehow without using new teeth or not dangerous
Hello Verliza, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Complaints about taste in the tongue can be caused by several conditions such as side effects of local anesthetics, nerve disorders that control the taste of the tongue, disruption of the surface of the tongue and several other conditions, so it is necessary to further evaluate by your dentist whether your current condition is indeed caused by the installation of dentures or other conditions that are not related to the installation of dentures, and determine whether it is dangerous or not.
For the time being, keep using the dentures until there is further advice from your dentist, and pay attention to how numb it is, whether it is getting heavier or not and whether it is ordered by other symptoms such as facial paralysis, swallowing disorders etc. , if these symptoms arise, immediately check with your neurologist for further examination and treatment. For food alone, there are currently no restrictions on certain foods, but avoid consuming hot food or drinks temporarily to prevent injury to the tongue or mouth. Also keep your teeth and mouth clean.
I hope this helps.
