Hi! I had a root canal without IV sedation on 6-12-18. My right jaw hurt mildly afterward. I only took a few Ibuprofen 600 mg given to me by the Endodontist. Vicks Vapor Rub on the outside of my cheek helped with the tooth pain before the appointment and after. On 6-21-18, my dentist put a filling in this tooth ( temporary?). My tongue fought him and I couldn't control it. He suggested for the temporary crown that I have an IV sedation. Why is my jaw still achy in the morning? Did my stubborn tongue cause my achy jaw? Will IV sedation calm my tongue? I also have a fear that I will swallow my tongue if I'm sedated. Thanks for any insight.
