Mouth | Odontologie | Numb Tongue (Symptom)


The feeling of anaesthesia, numbness or tingling on the tongue, is known medically as paresthesia of the tongue.


It occurs most often due to nerve damage. The medical term for the absence of sensation is the anaesthesia. Damage to the lingual nerve that supplies the language has been identified as a complication of dental procedures or dental surgery. Other conditions that can damage nerves are brain conditions such as stroke, which can cause numbness and tingling on the tongue. Sometimes these feelings extend to the involvement of the lips and / or jaws.
