After an accident, you worry that you have a potentially broken or fractured jaw. A broken or fractured jaw is extremely painful and requires prompt emergency treatment.
What to know
Signs that you have broken or fractured your jaw include bruising and swelling around your jaw, stiffness throughout your mouth and the jaw, loose or damaged teeth, a crooked or misshapen jaw, and difficulties opening and closing your mouth. If you think you have broken or fractured your jaw, apply an ice pack or other cold compress to alleviate swelling and pain. Apply firm pressure to any areas that are bleeding. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do at home to treat a broken jaw. Focus on keeping yourself comfortable and calm while you seek emergency treatment.
When to seek care
You need emergency dental care if you suspect that you’ve broken or fractured your jaw. In extreme cases, surgery may be necessary to reposition the jaw, or we might need to use jaw wiring to adjust the jaw’s position to assist with the healing process. Most patients will need antibiotics to prevent infection and prescription medication to manage their pain. If you have difficulty breathing or are experiencing heavy, uncontrolled bleeding, call 911 for immediate medical attention.
