Hi there,
Paresthesia usually happens after a difficult tooth extraction. Numbness of the tongue, lower lip and chin is a potential complication of extracting lower wisdom teeth. It is possible that this numbness is due to the local anesthetic used. These symptoms usually disappear within a day or so. Only in rare cases where there has been an injury to the nerves of the jaw there can be permanent numbness of the lip and tongue. Choking sensation during extraction might be due to severe pain or the dentist’s instrument being in the mouth causing choking feeling. A clinical examination may be necessary for correct management of your condition. Contact your dentist. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
