Just be careful not to chomp down on your tongue. Last time I had a cavity I was chewing on my tongue. It got swollen. Not good.

Not really, but don't wash down hot water, you'll burn your mouth.

I've found that just moving your mouth a lot will get it to die down faster, but since it's a medication they inject into your mouth, there's really no way to get it to "go away", but it should pass completely in an hour or so.
