Recently, the tip of my tongue has been numb after I brush my teeth. It lasts for a short period of time and only stays numb for 30 minutes of so. What could this be?

Thanks for the query

That does not seems to be any serious problem. however make sure the toothpaste you are using is not having any ingredients that can cause local anesthetic effect.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask
