I went to the dentist today and had 2 root canals done. I had no novocane. Now my lip is going numb. I had this work done at 4:30. I'm now wondering if I should be concerned?
Are : Are these the lower teeth on the side, behind the canine? If you had no anesthesia, the nerves in the teeth were probably non-vital. Did the dentist give you antibiotics?
