Patient's Concern

“I had 3 fillings on the bottom left side and 2 days later my jaw is swollen and its hard to chew. I had 5 shots to numb my mouth during the procedure and now its hard to open my mouth without being very painful.


What should I do to get ride of the pain & for the swelling to go down?


EDS Dentist Response

These symptoms can occur following a dental procedure involving an injection. Based on the information that you have given me, you will need the dentist to reevaluate the area to determine if the injection site has been traumatized, which can result in post operative swelling.


Follow up with your dentist or an oral surgeon to determine the origin of your problem. In the meantime rinse that area with warm salt water rinses.
