So three years ago almost I was attacked. I had both sides of my lower jaw broken and had to be wired for six weeks, with no plating needed thank God. Every now and again my face would feel a little strange but for the past few days, the areas where my jaw broke have been somewhat painful when I open my mouth fully. Could this be due to nerve pain or could this be an infection? I am going to schedule an appointment for a MaxFax if I can get it soon, but knowing is betrer than not.
