It is a fact that during various dental procedures requiring local anasthesia, sometimes the nerves never return back to normal feeling, and the patients loose their feeling in the chin, tongue, jaw etc.

It is one of the side effects, it all depends on the type of anasthetic used. The simples way to counteract the vasodilating effects of adrenaline which is a content of most dental anasthetics which is a vasoconstrictor would be to use a vasodilator to widen the veins. Ask your doctor, tough there are several mechanisms of "numbing" which are more complex in nature.
