Numbness behind my teeth after rhinoplasty.
I am a 20-year-old woman and I just received a nose job very recently. The area behind my front teeth is numb. It is annoying to me. When will it go away?
Numbness behind your front teeth is not abnormal following rhinoplasty surgery. Some of the nerves of the upper teeth pass through the nose. They may be affected during surgery. Typically, the numbness will subside after a few weeks or months. You should communicate your concerns to your surgeon since he or she is the best source of information regarding your specific case. At this early stage of recovery, your doctor can give you the best advice. Thank you for the question and best of luck to you.
