    I recently went to the dentist to get a permanent crown put in and prep another tooth for a temporary crown. The evening I got home from the dentist my mouth didn't feel right when the novicane wore off. When I woke up this morning, the side of my tongue that the work was done on is rough feeling like sandpaper, and sensitive. It is also brownish in color. It is just on the side though but it is very uncomfortable. I also have a grayish layer of skinish type material on the inner cheek where the work was done. Both are not excrutiating but very uncomfortable, does anyone have ideas as to what this could be?

    Dear Jon:
    What you have is probably some work related trauma. The provisional (temporary) restoration might be somewhat rough, and the cheek might have been "pulled" away during the procedure to give the dentist access to the tooth.
    Without examining you, this is all that I can speculate. However, the best advise is to call your dentist an inform him of this.
    Best of luck,
    Dr. Zev Kaufman
