FAQ:  Broken Jaw

Oral Surgeon Directory

  • Jaw Broken: I had one of my wisdom teeth removed about 5 or 6 years ago and everything, I thought, went smoothly.... but I should have known, maybe not as smoothly as I thought. I was still half asleep and the dentist office said "no charge" and kinda shoved me out the door as soon as possible. The next time I went to see a dentist was about 6 months to a year later. They said "do you know half your upper jaw is missing"?! I said "No". I didn't know what to do about it. I mean I've heard about people getting their jaws broken while having wisdom teeth pulled so I figured everything would be alright, but so far it's messed up my bite line ruining a lot of my other teeth, my eyesight and sinuses. What should I do? ...Visitor from Perry     (answer)

  • Lower denture with broken jaw: I broke my jaw several years ago and lost all top teeth. I have an upper denture. I have now lost a few lower teeth but the remainder are in bad condition. My dentist wants to remove all of them and put in 4 implants and a full lower plate. The problem is I have lots of pain where the jaw was broken and if pushed on, my jaw moves and causes pain up to my ears. Would this treatment work for me? ...Visitor from Mahwah NJ     (answer)

  • Is this pain from the trauma?
    I was in a very bad car accident in 1997. Along with other injuries, I broke my jaw bones in four places. I had surgery on them and had my mouth wired shut for a while. Now, almost 7 years later, I am still having pain along my jaw bones. It gets very bad at times, almost unbearable. It seems that my dentist and specialist don't believe me. Can this be from something besides the accident? Or, Can this actually still be hurting me after all this time? ...Visitor from NC     (answer)
