In brief: It is transient

This is the effect of the local anesthesia that the dentist gives inorder to numb the area that he works in to avoid the associated pain while treating the toothache, usually it is transient and it takes few minutes or hours depends on the amount of anesthesia.

In brief: Normal

These are normal responses to the medication and usually those feeling will reverse.
It is a result of the nerves being numbed.
