I saw my dentist today for a cavity filling they had to shoot me with the numbing three different times, now that it has worn off my jaw is killing me and I can't open my mouth without it killing me massively and can eat . Should I go to hospital? Its killing me!

  • This is normal. Sometimes numbing shots have to repeated to numb the tooth properly and after than there is pain when the affect of numbness goes. It will take a day or two for the pain to go. Till then you can take some pain killer tab and maintain good oral hygiene. for more info on problems after dental filling you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-reasons-of-tooth-ache-or-pain-after-dental-filling-812.aspx
