... up with a swollen gum and obvious swelling by the area (now I have a chip-munk cheek) and not much feeling other than numbness in the area. Is this temporary? I'm sure I applied way too much Orajel in a short period of time (bad toothe ache), but I've stopped using it now. Will feeling return and swelling go away by itself?
I've been using Orajel on my gum/toothe for 3 days. After the third day I woke?

The 1st and second day I used Orajel I had no problems and it actually worked great. It only until I over did it that I woke up this morning with this problem. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

well my original problem was that my filling fell out, and the pain from that came and went. Now the only pain/problem I feel is the numbness of the orajel and the swelling it caused. My toothe isn't bothering me but I know it still needs to be looked at. My dentist appt is friday, looks like pills and ice packs till then unless anyone has any better ideas? I appreciate your response(s), still looking for any ideas to bring down the swelling or fight the effects of orajel.
