May I help you?
How are you feeling today? Any better than last night?
Who suggested a phone call?
I just was wondering if you were any better?
Are you feeling this numbness, albeit is better today than yesterday? Is it more dominantly on one side over the other? Example, more felt on the right side. Upper teeth, lower teeth, etc.?
Maybe you know best then, how to ascertain that it won't re-occur???
On a serious not, when numbness occurs, it is almost always localized to one side (left or right), and generally on the bottom or top, but not generally both.
What would I do?
1) Perhaps stay away from what you know causes it.
2) Additionally, if it 'should' reoccur, I think I'd try to see either Dentist or Physician, as a hands on approach would be much more ideal.
But, I'm very happy you feel it is dissipating! I hope much continues...
I'm more - avoid the known problem, and "watch & see" approach person. I'd be inclined to do that first. See if it indeed subsides altogether, and go from there. Will it go away, only time will tell. But, I'd say the odds are much improved to say yes.
