I've had broken jaw because of a stupid accident. A truck goes over a stone and stone jump in my face. I've got tear lips and broken jaw.

I was in hospital and they wired together my jaws.

Now it's the next day after medical intervention.
I'm sitting home and I feel excessive tension in my teeth and also pain.
I'm afraid not to break some teeth that are with problems.
Also my lips are swallow and tender because was sewed by doctors.

Can you help please?

Those teeth tension are normal? Will release in time? :confused:
I read that some doctors use rubber bands in order to bond teeth together. My doctor use rubber bands for 1 day and after that he put some iron wires.

How can I reduce my lips swallow?:confused:

Thank you,
