While it isimpossible to diagnose your problem it is possible that the tingling is from pressure on the mental branch of your mandibular nerve. If so the sensation should stop or at least decrease upon removal of your prosthesis. Do not ignore this as prolong pressure may permanently damage a nerve and the altered sensation could also be a stroke or a tumor. Your dentist can treat the excess pressure by adjusting your denture

If you have symptoms of a stroke you need to get yourself to the emergency room ASAP, rule out the worst and fix the dentures later.
