I had my first crown put on a tooth with a huge filling in it about 2 months ago, when the dentist numbed the area to do the drilling, if felt some tingling in the chin area. I thought nothing of it at the time, but now, 2 months later there is still some partial numbness/pins and needle feelings. He says that it can happen in 1 in 300 cases, there is also some soreness down the left side of my throat at times. I have heard of people having this partial paresthesia, was wondering if anyone else has had it. How long it lasted for you. Were any meds prescribed that helped. Did trigeminal neuraligia get mentioned, does anyone have experience with that?
