  • I thought that you had to wait a while before eating after having a tooth pulled. that's what I thought since at one point in time I had my wisdom teeth removed and I couldn't eat anything for a while.I'm sure your mouth is still sensitive to temperature changes right after having a tooth pulled.

  • Sometimes the effect of the anesthesia takes time to wear off. You will notice a tingling sensation at first. I am uncertain about temp changes though. Could just be a sensory reaction to it. Call the dentist if you are truly worried...or wait to see if it improves later on or tomorrow.
