How long should my mouth be numb after having wisdom teeth removed?
More specifically, the numbness is in my chin and bottom lip. I used general anesthesia, but novocaine was also given. It's been 4 hours so far.

David F
Give it 3 days, or phone the dentist.

my brother's mouths were funny for about 3 days. ouch.

we are all different,but anytime now it should be wearing off,if after six hours,then I would seek advice from the dentist

Marcaine is normally given for extracting wisdom teeth. It usually lasts about 8 hours. This is purposely done, having a long-lasting anaesthetic, for your benefit. The pain sets in after that.

You should be using ice packs for now to minimize swelling, even though you don't have pain yet. Good luck.

it will go away in a few more hours. It takes awhile.

When I had a tooth removed recently under General Anesthesia [but with novocaine] it took almost 5 hours for it to feel normal.

3-4 hours is normal

Holly G
I don't know specifically BUT pray it stays numb as long as possible!

Rubba Bubba
usually 4 hours is the maximum. wait an hour or two if the numbness doesnt go away call your dentist and ask (he/she should have told you when the numbness goes away. my dentist tells me every single time i get novocaine no matter what)

Took me 8-10 hours, i thought it was never going to end and i was freaking out. It ended soon enough

Gl, hope you get back to normal

it will probably start to wear off in another hour or so...

it will go away soon...

Been a while since i had mine removed, but that doesn't seem unreasonable. Call your dentist back, whoever picks up the phone should be able to answer it.

Hope you got your script, 'cus it'll hurt once the anesthesia wears off.

Sarah B, Canadian Girl
I had partial numbness for a few days. The medication wore off totally within 6-8 hours

Give it an hour or 2 more and make sure to take your pain killers before you start to feel it.
