Unhappy Help post root canal problems

Had a root canal done yesterday and woke this morning with face and lip numbness. Anyone have any idea what is going on?

Re: Help post root canal problems

Ask your dentist what material was used for your root canal.

See the post titled Sargenti Paste.

Hi Deb,

Not uncommon. Sometimes you can get temporary paresthesis. Numbness from rubbing up againest a nerve while anesthetizing.. Sometimes you get a sock like feeling in the tongue from this and lip and tongue can feel numb for several days, up to several weeks. Let your dentist know if it continues.

Take care

Re: Help post root canal problems

You should read the thread under Sargenti Paste. I had a root canal done and have sinus problems ever since. I did some more research on it and read where you can have problems days or longer after the procedure is done. Formaldehyde can't be good for anyone...that is living anyways.
