Is it common to have lip swelling the day after novacaine and dental work

Posted by sandradee311

Went to dentist yesterday had a filling on front left incisor tooth and filing/sanding/grinding to remove stains on the front 4 teeth. Had numbing gel Then a novacaine shot around tooth with the filling. Novacaine wore off in about 3 hours completely my top lip was a little irritated last night woke up this morning look like I had lip injections. Swelling has only gone down a little feels like they are badly chapped and puffy, nothing else is bothering me, gums , teeth and injection site feel fine.
