1. If anesthetics have been injected, it will take 2 to 4 hours to recover from anesthetics. Until you get recover try avoiding eating and talking as you may hurt your lips and tongue. The gum tissue, along with the site of the injection, may be sore. A warm salt water rinse will relieve discomfort.
2. Do not bite hard or chew on new amalgam restorations the same day they are placed. Composite restorations are already set, and chewing is permissible.
