dental care


Question by  mooresnuthouse (1)

My tongue is "burnt" after my dental visit to prepare my teeth for my upcoming bridge work. Is this serious?


Answer by  SarahJane (114)

I don't think it is serious. My tougue feels "burnt", which I always describe as a "sandy tongue" after I have had novacaine injections under my tongue for dental work. It's probably fine,going away within a day or so, if it hurts and does not go away in a day or so you should call the dentist

A burning sensation on the tongue could be related to nerve damage caused by a topical anesthetic. Normally, this effect will improve with time, but it is best to consult with your dentist about the problem. Although this side effect is thought to be rare, in most cases it is not considered serious.

I think it is the first time you are visiting the dentist. It is nothing to worry,when the dentist used the appratus,it would have scrapped the tongue. It is common. Ask your dentist for medicine. If you continue to have this,then your doctor himself will give you the necessery treatment. Don't bother too much about it.

Your tongue should not be burnt. You should have no after affects for bridge work preparation. If your tongue is burnt then is something wrong with the dental surgery you have had. This could be quite serious. Is the teeth alright that are being prepared for the bridge. Is your dentist certified.
