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.

My dentist left a dark bruise on my jaw, & abrasions inside my mouth. It was never acknowledged by him. What can I do to make him realize he did it to me?
Though : Though I have to agree with the other responses there is one possible explanation that was not covered. I have had numerous occasions where patients have come back after treatment with the same complaints that you described. What has happened is that the patient has injured their cheek or tongue accidentally because they were still numb and did not realize that they had caused damage to themselves. I always caution my patients to be careful until the numbness wears off. Many patients who take Aspirin or Aspirin products are prone to bruising even after simple procures. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
