Hi all. I have suffered a hematoma in my right cheek due to the dentist hitting a blood vessel when giving anesthetic and was wondering if I could have some advice on how long it will take to heal please? Majority of the swelling has gone down but I have a massive purple and yellow bruise which hasn’t changed for two weeks. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks

Like all bruises, it'll take 2-4 weeks to recover. It should be going through the usual colour changes. Nothing you can do.
