Hello everyone. A little over a week ago my son was "sucker punched" as some call it from behind. It completly broke the right jaw in half and cracked the left. As of right now they have his mouth wired shut but are talking about putting plates in and pulling teeth. I have read much in here and now I am very worried of future issues. I have not spoke with the dr yet as the next appt is not here. Those of you with the plates, are they removed or do they stay in forever? Should I worry about the TMJ issue also? When he broke it we did not even know it was broke for over a week. Something about a nerve that got brused and killed the pain. The first Dr we saw was shouck he could even talk with the type of break he has. Should I worry about this nerve and long term effects? I am just reaching out for advise and help. Any and all will be greatly appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
