What treatment?: Not enough information. The invasiveness of the procedure could tell us much more. If surgery it may be normal, if an infection was causative, it takes a while for antibiotics to work. If a filling or crown was placed and is hitting prematurely, it can throw off your bite and cause much discomfort locally and distant. Call your dentist and discuss. Good luck!See 2 more doctor answers
Swelling under the jaw. Could it be lymph nodes? Or the salivary glands? I don't think it's my teeth or wisdom or jaw. Symptoms on my other question.
Swelling: Can't see your other question...system doesn't work that way. As a general rule, any pain, swelling, or bleeding should be immediately investigated. Could be lymph nodes swollen from trying to filter an infection, or partially blocked salivary gland, or draining abscess, or so many other things. Bite the bullet, call your Dentist or an Oral Surgeon for an examination.See 1 more doctor answer
I have ear fullness feeling and little swelling gland at jaw since 20 days and now swelling gland will normal only I have itchy in ear what is cause?
Is it the ear?: Palpate the swelling and open and close your mouth. If it is the jaw joint you will feel it move when you open and close. Sometimes the TMJ can give ear symptoms like fullness. I would have an ENT check it out first to be sure there are no medical problems. If not, then check with a dentist who conservatively treat TMJ issues to see if that is a possible cause.

Depends: If the soreness is muscular in origin from being open a long time or from stress on your joint, it is usually reversible and responsive to nsaids like ibuprofen. If the soreness seems to be near a tooth that was recently worked on, nsaids will help but you may need additional treatment on that tooth. Give it a day or 2 to settle down and return to the dentist if it persists.See 2 more doctor answers

An: An injection of any sort in most parts of your body can result in a "bruise", a small amount of internal bleeding at the injection site. It will usually go away without any problems. I don't know what dental procedure was performed on you, but the swelling could have been from the procedure or from the injection. I did not understand your question: are you still swollen over 2 weeks later, or 2 weeks later they told you that you were allergic to the anesthetic? Either way, to answer your initial inquiry, yes, an injection can leave a small, transient bruise.See 2 more doctor answers
