A broken or dislocated jaw can be caused by a number or scenarios including a sporting injury, an accident or even an assault.

Following high impact to the jawbone, patients should be aware of the symptoms that could indicate a broken or dislocated jaw.

Symptoms include:
 
  • Intense pain around the jaw
  • Difficulty in moving the jaw to speak or eat
  • Swelling
  • Numbness to the lower lip and chin
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Pain in front of the ear when the jaw moves
  • Teeth misaligned

A dislocated or broken jaw is an acute condition which should receive immediate medical attention.

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, our experienced Oral and Maxillofacial Consultants are on hand to assess, diagnose and treat broken and/or dislocated jaws.

Prior to coming to the hospital, we would recommend patients with an injury to the jaw use an ice pack at the scene to help reduce any further swelling and keep the jaw as still as possible until medical attention is sought.

We would also ask that you contact the hospital on 028 9066 7878 to speak with a member of the booking team to ensure a Consultant is on hand to assess your injury.

Depending on the extent of the injury, our team of Consultant Surgeons may be able to treat the injury under a light sedation, or alternatively, for more complex cases, patients may need surgery under a general anaesthetic.

To ensure a successful outcome, it is important for patients to be cautious six weeks post procedure to give the jaw time to heal and strengthen.

If you would like to book an appointment or require further information on the available options, please do not hesitate to contact our private patient booking team via our online enquiry form.

"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
