Default numbness in front teeth

I have been diagnosed with bulbar onset ALS. Lately I have been experiencing numbness in my upper two front teeth. My dentist did one of those panoramic x-rays and couldn't find anything wrong. Could this be at all related to ALS?

While on the subject of ALS symptoms, lately I've been clearing my throat a LOT! I should say my windpipe. Not only beverages but saliva, mucous and really fluids of any type. Does ALS paralyze the epiglottis?
