I had 2 cavities filled and one filling replaced in the lower right quadrant. I got shots of anastesia in three spots I think. She used plenty of numbing gel and I didn't feel more than a little pressure during the shots. Now 4 days later the teeth are fine but, my gums ae EXTREMELY tender, I have severe pain under my tongue and lump there. My throat and glands on the right side are so swollen I can barely swallow.And I have major pain at the back of my jaw in between my upper and lower teeth. My mouth/jaw/throat are hot. And I can feel my pulse throbbing in that area. I called to report the pain on Friday and she said just keep taking advil and doing saline rinses. If it's still hurting Monday call us. It just keeps getting worse- I haven't eaten anything besides soup for 4 days and now I can barely speak. In the morning my right ear hurts too. Do I have an infection or am I just being a baby?
