    Long Answer: You put your left leg in, you put your left leg out. Do the hokey kokey and shake it all about.

    Short Answer: Nope. It should wear off in time.

    Once, I had six teeth pulled in one day, and had 24 shots of novocaine. I was numb for a day, literally. It was not fun.

    When I had my wisdom teeth pulled, the dentist told me not to drink for 24 hours. Naturally I went straight to the Enlisted Men's Club and got er... excrement faced. Everyone was buying me drinks to watch and laugh as they rolled out of my numb mouth and down the front of my uniform.

    Use ice.

    Edit:


    No, what am I on about? Ice will make it more numb, not less! Sorry!
