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.
It is possible to have allot of pain even if you don't have a fracture. Infection isn't too probable unless you had something opened. Generally fractures in the face are pretty visable on xray because there isn't allot of soft tissue around the bones. Take some motrin or alleve and put some heat on it. Trauma to the teeth can cause the nerves in them to become inflammed. The motrin would help that.
