Is it a lower-jaw molar, by any chance?

Lower-jaw molars can be difficult to numb. If the dentist gives you an injection but you don't feel half of your lower lip go numb, don't let him start working on the tooth. The lower lip is controlled by the same nerve as the lower molars, so if the lip isn't numb, the molar for sure isn't numb either. If one does not get numbness in the lip, the injection is in the wrong place. The dentist needs to reinject until he gets the lip signs.

If it's an upper-jaw molar, the dentist needs to make three injections to get the tooth completely numb: Two on the cheek side of the tooth (there are two roots there), and one on the palate (the greater palatine nerve).
