Signs and Symptoms of Having a Broken Jaw
Pain is usually the biggest symptom that the person feels when they have a broken jaw. It is unbearable pain that they are unable to remove with just a simple over the counter pain killer. This is something that has to be treated before the person gets in too much pain.
Bruising and swelling in the jaw area, which may or may not have bleeding in the area is something that is common to think about.
