: I had 2 fillings today and I am wondering if it is normal to have pain in my jaw where the injection of novacaine was given? I got this done this morning and it hurts now in the back of my mouth where the novocaine was given. Thanks.
You are likely just bruised in that area. Injections in the mouth can cause bleeding, which will lead to the area being sore.
