Lip infection after dental work
It is not uncommon to experience some swelling or sensitivity in the lip after undergoing dental work, particularly if your dentist has had to use local anaesthetic during your treatment. However, it is highly uncommon for problems with your lips to persist for weeks after the treatment. In such cases, swollen, painful or sensitive lips could be an indication that there is an underlying issue that needs to be investigated.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I reduce swelling in lip after dental work?
A swollen lip after dental treatment is usually nothing to worry about, but it can be painful and irritating. Ensure that you clean the area well, brush teeth as normal, and be gentle around the swollen area. You may wish to apply a cold compress to the area to help to reduce the swelling.
However, if your lip remains swollen for a prolonged amount of time, or is getting progressively worse, or you have other symptoms as well; including pain, throbbing, redness or the sensation of heat in the area, or you are worried about the swelling, then you should seek medical advice as soon as possible as your symptoms could indicate severe infection or another issue that requires treatment.
If you are struggling with a swollen lip and you believe that it could be due to a substandard level of care by your dentist, you may be able to file a claim. Contact our expert team today on 0808 120 8730 or request a call back.
