Can I have permanent nerve damage because of a filling? The right side of my tongue is numb, and I can’t taste or barely feel anything on that side.
What a dentist uses to numb your gums in order to do a filing should not still be making you feel that way two days latter. There are times when you just need to speak to your doctor about the issues you are having. This is one of those times. Please call your dentist or your doctor to find out why you are still numb two days after having a filling.
