numb top front teeth and a lisp after double jaw surgery

Hey there, I am at almost 4 weeks post double jaw surgery and noticed recently that my top front teeth are numb. I guess after they took out my splint and I could start `exploring`my mouth. At the same time I have had a lisp since the surgery. Is it possible that both are related? And do they genera...

Re: post-Bimax: how long does the pain last?

Hi Tomm31, I am 4 weeks post op tomorrow. I had, and have, significant pain. One week + post op it was at a 7 or 8 out of 10, and that's with round-the-clock treatment with codeine and tylenol and advil. It was searing, jabbing, burning pain all the time and worse at night. It actually hurt inside ...

They are quite uncomfortable and I am a bit self conscious about them BUT I am old enough to have an overall distance to ...

Personally I think that sound way to ambitious. [/quote] I am getting the bimax done in France and I...

Don...
