You may require a filling (bonding) if you have a cavity or abrasion or a professional desensitizing treatment. ...Read more

This can result from the extraction procedure itself, or sometimes from the dental injection. In most cases, there is a gradual return of sensation. I would, however, contact the dentist or oral surgeon, and consult with them regarding your symptoms and concerns. ...Read more
