Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

Pressure in ears as well as numbness in lips occur due to-

T M J dislocation or sinusitis.

Periapical infection due to grossly decayed tooth can also cause numbness of lips.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done by a dentist.

Infected tooth has to be extracted or restored.

Meanwhile,maintain oral hygiene well.

Avoid spicy foods.

Also consult an E N T Specialist for further reference.

Take care.
