This is by far the most helpful guide in the process of healing my broken jaw. I had an upper molar removed in my dental office, I was alert through the process and felt the bone snapping. I was sent home without antibiotic therapy, but was told the bone broke. Nine weeks later I am still on antibiotics and steroids. I sought help from an oral surgeon who also put me on a regimen of antibiotics with Sudafed, because of a punctured sinus as well. Symptoms of infection and broken jaw included but weren't limited to shooting pain in face and behind eye, terrible jaw pain alongside my face and neck, vomiting and feeling very ill, a bloody nose a few days after extraction (I thought it was due to dry air), and terrible pain in the roof of my mouth on the buckle of the tooth in front of the one extracted. Get help, make your providers listen. I was actually told during this ordeal by my dentist’s receptionist that I couldn't get in to be seen because my dentist had a golf game. I'm notifying my dentist of her incredible inability to recognize a potential emergency. Your article will help on my recovery. Thank You..
