Can anesthesia cause teeth to sensitive?
Since having surgery (9 days ago) my teeth have been becoming more and more sensitive. It has become painful to drink any liquid that is not room temp. Is this common?
I am assuming that your surgery had nothing to with your teeth. This is not something I have ever encountered or read about in relation to general anesthesia.
