Dentist 's  Response
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Tingling on lower jaw occur due to-any p eri apical infection of tooth spread into sinus spaces.

Inflammation of lymph nodes can also cause such symptoms.

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

Infected tooth has to be restored or extracted.

Maintain oral hygiene well.

Tab.am oxy cillin as well as analgesics can relieve pain temporarily.

Pus if present,has to be drained completely.

Hope this helps.
