I went to the hospital and they took xrays. They side it was not broken or fractured. I was not impressed with them or the fact that I only saw the doc for 30 seconds when he told me the results. No exam. Now almost 3 wks later, I am still in major pain & discomfort. I had a dentist appt but it was cancelled and rescheduled (another week out) due to weather. So can you please tell me, can an injury cause an infection? Can I have fractured it even if they clam not to have seen on i the xray? My teeth hurt, jaw hurts, and so many different types of pain & discomfort. Its becoming depressing and wearing me out.
