The numbness usually lasts about a few hours. I would say that the most it would be numb for would be another hour. It’ll probably wear off soon.

About half an hour more should bring on some tingling… then feeling should come back in no time!

AB

about 4 hours

It depends on if it was short or long acting
the max is usually 6-8 hrs. this particular anesthetic is usually used for extractions or people who are hard to get numb.
Short acting is usually 2-4 hours and depends on the patient.

HI,
HOW LONG IT LASTS DEPENDS ON EXACTLY THE TYPE OF ANESTHETIC USED.
NORMALLY IT WEARS OFF IN A FEW HOURS.
IF YOU’RE STILL NUMB 24 HOURS AFTERWARD CALL THE DENTIST BECAUSE THAT IS NOT NORMAL.
