I had a little oral surgery yesterday. They put in an implant after removing an old root-canaled tooth that had cracked irrepairably. I was under general anesthesia for the procedure and the doc hit me with a local as well. Today, some 24 hrs after the surgery, I still have novocaine numbness. It isn't what it was yesterday but wow... I am still drooling. Unless he cut the nerves I guess there's no reason for concern, and to be honest the fact that he drilled a titanium post into my jaw means a little residual numbness is welcome.
The family, meanwhile, is quite pleased I'm blathering far less frequently - not so much the drooling, though.
