Hello and welcome to hcm,
Numbness may be due to facial nerve damage during local anaesthesia administration.
Ringing and deafness may be associated with improperly placed or high points in the crown placed,
Also get the root canal treated teeth examined.
An x-ray of the treated teeth will help to evaluate the condition.
THorugh scaling is to be done.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Re-rct can be done if required.
High points in crown has to be corrected soon to prevent temporomandibular joint disorders.
Take care.

Hello,
This could not be related to the treatment done. You have ringing in your ear. Consult an ENT specialist to rule any ear related problem. You have not mentioned if you have a permanent numbness or a transient numbness in your face. Numbness could be related to a nerve problem in your face.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Numbness in face, ears can be of dental origin, there can be a chance of trauma to the facial nerve at the time of performing the dental procedure.
Ringing sound in the ear can be due to TMJ abnormality, ear infection.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done.
Also get the clinical examination done by ENT specialist
Maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Regards.
