  • Some times with anaesthesia it happens. When anesthesia is injected, the needle tears the muscle tissues and they become sore. It takes sometime for them to heal. The only treatment for this is to keep doing the stretching excercises like opening and closing of mouth and you can do hot fermentation also to relax the muscles of that area. It is due to the local anesthesia shot. This problem is quite normal and will resolve with time. Maximum it can take 2-3 months to heal. Till then maintain good oral hygiene.
