Jaws wired together
Jaws are sometimes wired together after jaw surgery to let the jaws heal more easily.

why do jaws have to be wired together? How do you eat or talk? I am very intrested to have an answer!!!

they are put on and you have to either eat jell o until they are healed, or through a feeding tube. you write down what you want to say, and if you have practiced in ventriloquisim, it will be easy.

When my daughter had my sugery on her jaw, her jaw was wired shut for six weeks to alow healing. She had to be fed by intervenous because it was impossible for her to open her mouth.

I'm having Jaw surgery in eighteen months and have been told I'll need to eat liquids only for 6 weeks - does that mean my jaws will be wired? I'll have to ask my surgeon!

i can safely say that having this treatment scares the flying crap out of anyone but it is well worth it i mean you could do a sponsored silence and amaze all your freinds by going on for about six months. ruud
unclebug () - 05/May/2003 2:29:57 AM
does jaw surgery need to be wired. i heard that you wear elastics instead of being wired.

my lil 6 year old bro is gettin his jaws wired together in 2 days cuz he fell of his bunk bed and broke his jaw.....can anyone give us some advice on wat to do and how to help him? thanx alot...ps. does anyone think its too early to start the braces process on him...the ortho wants to wire in headgear while he cant take it out......
() - 07/Aug/2003 6:22:13 PM
If you don't like the idea of eating liquids and not being to open your mouth and speak, just say to your orthodontist that you don't want wired jaws. By law (human rights law) you would be able to say no to wired jaws. IT LOOKS PAINFUL!!!!
() - 23/Aug/2003 4:55:08 PM
U must REALLY want straight teeth to do this!

If you are sick when you have these, you must cut the wires with wire cutters to stop yourself from choking!!

I have a very strange case of TMJ and it seems to be getting worse. I have been to see 3 different specialists and I have been told the same thing, ( live with it ). Well I think it is that we have unsure specialists in that field here in Ontario and they need to brush up on their knowledge. I'm 30 years old and I want the pain to stop it is seriously affecting my hearing on my left side. ( HELP IF YOU CAN PLEASE! )
