Hi Peter, whenever a dentist injects an anesthetic in the upper anterior area there is always a possibility that the needle may be advanced too high resulting in some anesthesia in either the nose or sub orbital area. This is not dangerous but it is very disconcerting and alarming to the patient. Your dentist is correct that over a short period of time everything will return to normal. You need do nothing to cause this to happen. Normal blood flow will slowly wash the area out and you will be normal again. So no need to worry. Hope this helps you relax knowing you will just fine! If you need more information about this issue please do not hesitate to ask. Please leave a positive rating because that is how I get credit for responding. Thanks.
