dental question?

I had a filing on Friday and needed quite a few injections to numb my tooth. The tooth is fine but my jaw is still sore and hurts when I open my mouth. is this normal?

    It's very normal to be sore due to the injections, especially if you had to have a few. Try taking some Ibuprofen.

    If they were lower injections, you can have those symptoms for a few days. try putting a warm compress on the sore area. A couple Motrin can help with pain.

    no, its not. You should call the dentist and tell him. I don't know what they can do now. I hope it gets better. Im having some dental problems right now, myself, but your situation dos'nt sound normal.
