Question: I am not sure if anything can be done . My son who is 26 yrs old had his jaw broken, it was broken to two places and it was also dislocated. He had surgery and had a plate put in. His bit is not even now and he has what we believe is a small sharp bone sticking out where his jaw joins so when he bites this bone digs into the side of his jaw. he has already went to his follow up from the hospital and at that time he asked the Dr why this was with the bone and his bite and the Dr replied I did the best I could. Is there any thing we can do regarding this? did the hospital get the rite DR

Answer: You should go see another doctor for a second opinion and based on what that doctor says, make a decision from there. It may not be that the first one did anything "wrong" just some things are hard to fix. But the second doctor should be able to let you know.
