Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The pain and difficulty in mouth opening can be because of the inflammation and damage to the muscle fibres while injecting the local anesthetic solution. NOthing to be panic, it will subside in 5-7days time. Mean while you can take an analgesic with muscle relaxant like ibuprofen and chlorzoxazone respectively. Do saline gargling.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
