Why Would Your Jaw Hurt Up to a Week After an Auto Accident?


Posted on 3/13/2018 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
Jaw Pain Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants WI 53713When you are in an auto accident, you may find that you have hurt a number of areas in the body. When this happens, it will take the body a while to readjust and go back to normal.

It needs to heal with time and the only way that it is going to be able to do this is if you spend some down time and relax. The same goes for the jaw area.

When the jaw is harmed, it is a delicate part of the body and it can easily be bruised. This means that it is going to take some time to heal once again.

Always See a Dental Professional

If you have been in an auto accident that has harmed you jaw, then it is especially important that you see a dental professional that is able to provide the help that you need.

Whether it is therapy or anything else, they can ensure that your jaw is in the best shape possible so that you can resume a normal life, no matter how bad your jaw has been harmed due to the accident.

TMJ is also a problem that presents itself after a car accident. Sometimes this can even lead to the jaw locking and the person having a hard time opening it at all. This is why a dental professional is required to help the person get their jaw back in the best shape.

Not only that, but specialized mouth guards are required so that the person does not do more damage to the teeth and jaw while sleeping.

If you have jaw issues, or known someone that does, give us a call. Our dental professionals can provide you with more information on ways to help the jaw heal faster and ensure that it is in the best shape, even after the worst of accidents out there.
