Can anxiety cause numb gums/teeth?


I have numb gum/teeth up top and I think I'm in good dental health. I do have a cold and cough right now. I was wondering if anxiety could be causing this maybe?

you could be grinding your teeth at night. bruxing. due to anxiety. if your tooth is numb you may have damage a nerve. you should def see a dentist

Try to tack to see if you are hyperventelating when you feel this. When I hyperventilate, my lips go numb.

I have had occasional pains and numbness (I know it sounds strange, but its almost like a frozen feeling) in my chin and upper and lower teeth at the front of my mouth. No idea whats causing it but as I have so many symptoms maybe it is anxiety
