I went to the dentist a few months ago to get a cavity filled and they had to numb me with a shot. The initial shot hurt more than a normal shot and then after the shot wore off it hurt really bad. A few days passed and it turned into an ache in the gums of all my teeth, a throbbing under the teeth, and they have become more sensitive than they were.
I've read that some anesthetics have adverse reactions and I wondered if this will be a permanent condition or if there is something to be done about it. ...Visitor from CA
I would like to help you with your question but I need more information.
Yes, certain anesthetics can have an adverse reaction including gum pain and throbbing. It usually subsides within a few days but can last for longer periods of time. Your dentist should have some medications to help your tooth pain but will probably require an office visit.
