Children, and even adults, tend to bite their lips and the inside of their lips when they are numb after a dental appointment. Since the patient is numb from anesthesia, they won’t even feel themselves chewing their lip. Because of this they often continue chewing until they damage their lips or cheeks and they become swollen and sore. Sometimes, the lips or cheeks even become cut and bleed. In addition to this problem, teens and adults are often embarrassed about being numb because they can’t speak, smile, or drink properly. Not only does this make the patient self-conscious, it makes them uncomfortable. When a patient is numb, drooling can occur.
