So for some reason my top-right incisor and the two to the right of it are now numb.  Now a few days ago I ate some really hot food that probably burned my gums and I thought at first that was the problem, but they're still numb, no feeling at all.  These are teeth that have never had any problems whatsoever and since regaining employment I've kept mostly good care of my teeth :p  But this is such a strange thing.  Anyone else have any experience with this?  

And yes, if I don't see any improvement in the next day or two I will visit the dentist.

It sounds like you may have damaged some nerves, during my recent dental experiences I read that it's possible to loose feeling in teeth and gums where nerve damage occurs, and it can take several months or longer for the feeling to return.

But it could be something over nothing, either way, no harm in getting checked by your dentist.
