Brief Answer: No panicking yet. be calm Detailed Answer: Hi and thanks for the query, It is not rare to experience what you are experiencing after such a procedure. This is a common feel most patents do feel after this procedure. This is explained by the fact that nerves innervating both mouth, tooth and ear areas are touched during this process. many sensitive nerves are found in the head region, reason why it is too sensitive to pain. You might simple pain killers like Acetaminophen in case you experience any pains. This feeling should normally fade out within a couple of days. IN case in seven days after the procedure you continue having the feeling, you might need to consult your doctor. But you need not panic now, be cool. Thanks and hope this helps as I caution you to be calm and watchful. Kind regards as I wish you the best of health. Dr Rogers
