Tooth Numbness / Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity and numbness is very normal after the septoplasty portion of rhinoplasty, and is a sign your surgeon was throrough in making sure your septum was straight at the end of surgery. It can take several weeks to go away. It might be a good idea to eat soft foods for a while if your having trouble, so you don't hurt your front teeth accidentally.

Teeth numbness after rhinoplasty
- It can be normal to feel this sensation because of the work done inside the nose
- It usually comes back, but it can take some time
- You will notice that as the swelling goes down, the sensation should start coming back
- Talk to your surgeon if you are concerned
