numbness of the lip and jaw after a root canal?
Had a tooth cracked and a root canal was done to save the tooth. When the freezing came out I had a very sore jaw for 2 days and a lump where the freezing was injected. As the swelling went down a numbness developed. The dentist gave antibiotics but the numbness is still there. What do I do next? Will pulling the tooth eliminate the numbness?

It sounds like he forgot a nerve.Well maybe cuz once the nerve is cut u shouldn't feel anything there cuz the nerve is dead.If your talking about pain there is a thing called a dry socket which u will need more antibiotics to get rid of it.I'm not to sure cuz I had a root canal done n it was a long time ago n that's all I remember the dentist telling me.

i think i can relate to your question.....
i had a wisdom tooth extraction almost 2 months ago now and they numbed me up pretty good.
most of the numbness went away but there is a certain part of my lip,jaw and gums that are numb not really bad though.
i asked the dentist about it and he just said that it will all go away in do time, and that they probably did something to the nerve while working on my teeth.
worst case scenario is that the feeling wont come back but that is very rare. the feeling in mine is slowly coming back. :)

i think you should wait it out.
if you're worried talk to your dentist.
i dont think pulling the tooth will help any.
good luck

SOmetimes when a dentist injects you, it hits the nerve. You may develope some bruising, have some ice on the area, it should help it a bit. The numbness should go away in a few days.

I hope you feel better, if not sue the dentist:)

You may have to because it probably damaged your nerves in your jaw

They may have severed a nerve during the root canal. When I had my wisdom teeth removed they severed a nerve. As a result, about 1/3 of my tongue is numb and has been for about 10 years now. I don't notice it so much anymore and kept hoping I would get feeling back, but now I'm used to it.

You did not mention how long this has been happening, or if it is in the front or back of your mouth!
I had a root canal on a molar and they pulled the tooth and capped it! Very easy and you don't have to worry about future problems!
But I would call your dentist or go in to talk w/ him since most of the time a receptionist speaks with you on the phone and do no help for you!

sounds like nerve damage...might stay that way or it might go away

Nora G
call and tell ur dentist what is going on, he can help u best.

numbness will eventually go away...otherwise there is a possibility that the surgery gave a nerve somewhere a headache...you'll have to tell the dentist about this one if it doesn't clear up in a few days.
