The Nasopalatine nerve controls feeling in your four upper front Teeth (central and lateral incisors) and a small part of the roof of mouth behind these teeth. This Nerve passes through the nasal septum (the cartilage and bone dividing the middle of the nose).
Damage or swelling of this nerve during Septoplasty Surgery or rhinoplasty may cause a feeling of pain, numbness, or tingling in the upper front teeth for two to three weeks. The roof of the mouth in back of the upper frontal teeth may feel slightly burning or numb. This sensation will most likely decrease gradually as the septum heals.
If you feel any of these things after Septoplasty or rhinoplasty Surgery, Don’t worry as they will most likely heal after a while. If you are concerned about them, you may follow up with your surgeon who knows best about your procedure and who might prescribe some medication to help you during the few days after surgery.

If during rhinoplasty was done also a septoplasty (including the vomer bone from the septum) you may have some pain in the upper teeth and palate of the mouth, it's not a problem, and it's pretty common, that will resolve spontaneously over time over a couple of weeks.
Some patients also get some pain in their front teeth. This is because there is a nerve that runs from your nose to your front teeth that can get bruised during the procedure.
After Rhinoplasty you may have pain in teeth, You should take proper pain killer tablets and in the proper amount. You can take Diclofenac Sodium 2-3 times daily to get rid of the pain. If you still feel pain after this, then you should consult your surgeon for a check up on possible hematoma or any other problem. Usually resolve quickly in 7 - 10 days with use of normal anti-inflammatory.
A rhinoplasty procedure will result in little to no pain at all , Following surgery, most patients experience mild to moderate discomfort that can be controlled with medication. Pain at any intensity will usually last for only 36 to 72 hours, but may last longer if the nose is manipulated or bumped.
Brush your teeth gently and with a soft brush for some time after surgery and avoid manipulation of the upper lip so the nose will remain motionless. Avoiding stress and pressure on or around the nose makes a lot of good sense, but the nose isn’t the only area that must be treated gently during rhinoplasty recovery. Brushing your teeth might not be an activity you’d connect with your healing nose, but it’s important to take it easy while doing this twice-a-day activity. Aggressive tooth brushing can shift the upper lip and, potentially, affect the cartilage and tissue of the nose as it heals. You can still get a good brushing without moving around too much, so just keep this in mind when you pick up your toothbrush.
