I had a dental block for lip juvaderm in 4 spots of the mouth. After just 2 hours of icing, numbness went away in 3 locations. 5 days later, my 1 spot is still numb. I made contact with my PS and assured me feeling would come back but I'm very afraid this feels permanent. We agreed it could have triggered a nerve. Will my numbness ever go away? Please help!

5 Days Later Still Numb from Juvederm Dental Block?
No nerve should be transected during filler or block. As such, numbness should be transient. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Rest assured because the numbness will go away. The needle may have come in contact with the nerve during the dental block, but it will regenerate and your sensation will return.

An affected nerve can take awhile to stop being numb, but yes, it will resolve with time. The numbness will go away but it can take several days or even weeks. It will go away though and it's not permanent.
