Ngeow, Dr. W.C. (1998) Lower lip numbness due to peri-radicular dental infection. [Journal (Paginated)]

Full text available as:



Lower lip numbness has always been a sinister symptom. Much has been written about it being the sole symptom of pathological lesions and metastatic tumours in the mandible. It may also be a symptom of manifestations of certain systemic disorders. A case of lower lip numbness resulting from the compression of the mental nerve by a peri-radicular abscess is presented because of the unusual nature of this spread of infection.
