In brief: See ur surgeon

There are a number of treatments available to help stimulate healing, including medications and laser therapy.
Knowing exactly what caused the paresthesia would be helpful in determining the therapy necessary.

Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pak if started soon enough after paresthesia was noted, ice to reduce swelling.

In brief: See a neurologist

Paresthesia also called oral numbness occur following restorative and surgical dental procedures.
Even administration of local anesthetic could be a cause of the paresthesia. The bottom line, paresthesia is a nerve damage disorder and should be treated as a neuropathy by a neurologist.
