If You Fall and Your Jaw Hurts, What Do You Do?

Falling is a common occurrence with many senior patients, those that regularly play sports and anyone else that might have had a slip or trip in the past. Usually, you get back up and shake it off. You don't have anything majorly wrong. What happens when you do fall and then your jaw hurts?

Call a Doctor and a Dentist

Both of these professionals can review the area and let you know what they think. A lot of people do not think to call a dentist, but they're the ones that specialize in any jaw related injuries or pain. They can also examine the teeth to see if there has been damage to these areas.

An x-ray is usually required to find out if there has been any dislocation, fractures or other injuries that would not normally be able to be seen by the naked eye. Symptoms and an x-ray will help the doctor and dentist review the possible problem to come up with a solution.

Sometimes it is an easy fix that does not require anything. More serious injuries may require wiring of the jaw, resetting or other treatment plans. Each injury is different. This is why it is important to speak with someone if you do injure your jaw. They can provide more individualized care.
