About Six Weeks Ago My Left Jaw And Facial Bone Sustained A Minor Fracture. The Doctor Said That He Expected Them To Heal Within A Week Or Two And Prescribed Antibiotics And Pain Meds. For The Most Part It Has Healed Except Now My Right Jaw Tends To Almost Lock And Kindve Pushes Itself Leftward In The Process Of Opening My Mouth Causing My Mouth To Open Abnormally...And Lips Are Shorter On One Side Then On The Other.

I Was Wondering If All This Is Normal And Will Go Away In Time Or If It Isn't And If So Then What Type Of Doctor Would Be Best To See.
