Jaw Injuries and Disorders

The jaw is the set of bones that hold your teeth.  Jaw injuries such as a dislocation or fracture are the most common jaw injuries, resulting from an injury to the face. Jaw disorders such as temporomandibular joint dysfunction, osteonecrosis and cancers are other disorders of the jaw.
