The patient felt an electric shock on his tongue while I was inserting the needle for the block. I had not injected anything yet. Is there a different way to manage the paresthesia if you know it is from trauma or from anesthetic toxicity?
Dental work — including fillings, crowns and root canals — requires a local anesthetic that may also numb your lips, cheeks and tongue. The numbness can last two or more hours after the procedure. When your mouth and lips are numb, it can be difficult to smile, talk or drink.
The biggest advantage of this technology. The patient does not feel discomfort due to numbness of the whole cheek, lip, tongue and other tissues of the face. Just after rising from the odontologist chair, the patient is able to perform her daily routine: she can speak, and drink and chew normally.
Special Offers. Sometimes your dentist needs to numb a part of your mouth. He or she injects medicine into your gum or inner cheek.
Mandibular canal is the most important anatomical landmark in the body of mandible which always must be considered for implant surgery in posterior mandibular region. Damage to vessels and inferior alveolar nerve that passes through the mandibular canal can cause problems such as hemorrhage and neurosensory disturbances. Damage to the mandibular canal can occur during implant surgery.
Your face contains a complex web of nerves. Any sort of damage to one of these nerves can potentially cause numbness in your chin. Depending on which nerve is affected, you may only feel numbness on the right or left side.
Administration of local anesthetics is daily routine for most dental practitioners. Normally, the effect is achieved and no adverse effects are seen. However, complications, even very serious ones, can occur in daily practice. Complications related to local anesthesia can be divided into two categories: peroperative and postoperative complications.

There is no such thing as a minor dental nerve injury. Dental nerve injuries are always an upsetting event for those unfortunate enough to experience them. More often than not, these injuries are debilitating and permanent. When filling materials are overextended they can enter the underlying main sensory nerve in the lower part of the jaw or enter into the sinus in the upper jaw and burn the delicate nerve tissue.
