Category: Accidents, Emergencies and Poisons

is too far forward. The jaw may turn toward the other side in one-sided
Treatment. Hold something hard between the teeth in front so that when
the jaw snaps in place your thumbs will not be bitten. A piece of wood as

jaw two-thirds of the length backwards, and your forefingers directly
underneath the jaw; with the thumbs press down and with the fingers pull
Oblique Bandage of Jaw.
Medicated Cotton can readily be applied with this
