Re: soreness at novocaine injection site for weeks now
I had the same problem not too long ago, i had a crown put on and i thought that the injection site was causing the pain in the very back part of the jaw where the shot was given....the pain wouldnt go away and i even called to ask if this could be caused by the injection, she said she didnt think it was possible for it to last this long. I was in so much pain i couldnt open my mouth all the way, nor eat anything. Went back to see the dentist and turns out my bite was off, so he did some grinding on the crown to make it shorter, and WOW, did that do the trick! That maybe your problem too, so go back if this continues and ask him to check your bite.
