Hi dear, don't worry for the numbness, it will subside by its own. At least wait for 7 to 10 days time. If it doesn't get solved, then consult your Dentist. Take care

Not to worry dear, numbness generally goes away in 5 to 6 hours. If it does not subside in 24 hours of extraction, the you need to visit your dentist to look for minor complications. Wish you a good and early recovery. Regards.

Temporary loss of sensation is common after third molar extraction. No need to worry mostly resolves on its own. Still better to consult your dentist
