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.

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

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
