Signs Your Teeth or Jaw Were Damaged During a Recent Accident
Posted on 9/25/2019 by Rodney Rastegar
A car accident is a traumatic experience. Anytime your body undergoes some type of trauma, it is possible to suffer some type of damage. People will check their body for obvious signs of a problem after an accident. They will look for blood or broken bones. If they do not see anything obvious, they may think that everything is fine. This is not always the case. It is possible to suffer damage to the teeth or jaw that is not as obvious. These are some of the signs of a problem in this area to look for after an auto accident. The Obvious SignsAfter an accident, there are often obvious signs of injury. Broken bones, blood and loss of consciousness are some of the signs that you would need medical treatment. When it comes to your haw and teeth there are some obvious signs that treatment is needed. If you hit your jaw on something during the accident and are not able to move it without pain, that is a sign that something is wrong. If you notice that some teeth are broken chipped or have been completely knocked out, that is another sign to seek help. Most people realize that they need to seek help when they see signs that are so obvious. The Less Obvious SignsThe problem with auto accidents is that some injuries are not always so obvious. They do not start to appear until hours or days later. It is important to look out for some things after you are in an accident that could affect your jaw and teeth. Many people suffer from loose teeth as the result of an accident. They may not realize it at first, but over time the teeth will get looser and looser and may eventually fall out. People may not also notice small fractures or cracks in the teeth unless they look carefully. Some injuries may only become visible through x-rays and other types of tests. Accidents can also cause TMJ disorders which can cause pain in the jaw. These can also take time to develop and may only get worse over time. It is important to get a good checkup after an accident, even if you don't think you have any injuries. This includes a full dental exam to look for any problems.
