Hi All,

Hoping for some help and info. A few months ago i had a back tooth pulled. Every now and again the back of my tongue on my left side feels kind of numb/burnt and as if i have bits of something on my tongue but there is nothing there it also lasts for a few days sometimes weeks. I have tried different toothpaste and mouthwash but no luck. Does anybody have any ideas at all what it could be ?

Thank you

Which tooth did you have pulled? If it is on the lower left, your tongue may be experiencing paresthesia. Usually that resolves within a few weeks.

Hi honest doc. Thanks for the reply. It was a lower back left tooth. However this was pulled a couple of months ago ?

Does your tongue feel numb all the time or sometimes? Does it seem to improve over time? I'm suspecting some swelling that may be placing pressure against the tongue (lingual) nerve. You should follow up with an oral surgeon and possibly consider corticosteroid therapy to reduce the pressure against that nerve.
