Quote from Kikki:This can be quite normal, but it just depends on what type of novocaine that was used. There are some types that last just an hour or two, and there are others that last 6-8 hours. As long as you are seeing some improvement, I would not worry. After I had a bunch of dental work done it took all day and most of the night for it to all wear off (my dentist used the longer acting stuff so I would not hurt and could go about my day pain free). You should feel back to normal by this evening, maybe the morning.
Thank you :)
It's another two hours and I'm almost back to normal.
Except for the pain. But those Tylenol 3's are going to come in handy. :)
