See Dentist Again: Your recent lower molar extraction is probably not related to your top teeth being numb, although that can be responsible for the jaw (bone) pain. A missing filling also would not cause numbness. These sounds like serious symptoms which need professional care. Don't take a chance that this condition will persist or become chronic. Go back to your dentist and find out what's going on right away.

See surgeon: You need to call the oral, surgeon or dentist that did your extraction about this numbness. There could be an infection or nerve problem that needs to be evaluated. Call today.

Complex symptoms: And potentially serious ones that require an evaluation right away! the numbness is the one of greatest concern. See your dentist right away for a re-examination and post-op visit!
