If More than 6 hrs: Presumably, you had injection in mouth for dental procedure. As local anesthetic wears off, it will be painful for few hours. Buy if pain persists after 6-10 hours, and the dentist had told you it shouldn't, call him/here.

No.: Discomfort at the injection site is normal for 2-4 days. When you have been anesthetized for dental procedures on mandibular teeth, bottom teeth, you may experience more discomfort when opening wide, such as when yawning. Injection sites used for maxillary teeth, top teeth, will also be sore. If your discomfort lasts for more than a week you may want to see your dentist.
