Numb Teeth after broken nose
Hi,

I have broken my nose about a week ago, quite badly, and now i have 2 numb teeth. Also if i press just below my eye I can feel it in those teeth. There is no pain and the teeth are not loose, but it is quite uncomfortable.

Could anyone advise why this may be and how long it takes to return to normal?

Is there anything I can do to speed the recovery up?

Thanks

Dear Matt233
Have you had the area x-ray'd yet? I would recommend seeing an Oral Surgeon to rule out fractures in the maxillary bone.

No I haven't had an x ray as I have broken my nose several times and never had any treatment when I've been seen.

Think I may have to make an appt
