Face and Jaw Surgery

Jaw Cracked From Wisdom Teeth

06/28/2010

Question:

I had to have my wisdom teeth removed because they were impacted. My mouth is now wired shut for at least three weeks. the dentist told me my lower jaw is cracked in three places. Is this a normal outcome? My chin is still numb on the left side, one week after surgery. I have been told that I should talk to a lawyer about malpractice. What is your opinion of the outcome. I can only eat through a straw. I am off work without income. I have a one year old daughter I have to support.

Answer:

The problems you describe could be due to a number of things, and not being familiar with the details of your case, it would not be appropriate for me to comment.
