Patient :Got a blow to the jaw last night, and I'm wondering if it is broken? There is no deformity and it doesn't hurt too bad but if I press on it, it hurts? There was no bleeding, no teeth are gone/loose but it does hurt a small bit to eat but it doesn't hurt too much. My bite doesn't seem to be "off" either and I can move it around with just a tiny bit of pain.
