DISLOCATION OF THE JAW





Category: Accidents, Emergencies and Poisons

It is not possible to close the mouth. The chin
is too far forward. The jaw may turn toward the other side in one-sided
dislocation.



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
thick as your fingers will do. Stand in front of the patient, who should
be sitting in a high chair. Put your thumbs in the mouth upon the lower
jaw two-thirds of the length backwards, and your forefingers directly
underneath the jaw; with the thumbs press down and with the fingers pull
forward.


Oblique Bandage of Jaw.
Medicated Cotton can readily be applied with this
style of Bandage.
Bandaging and Photograph by

Sometimes it is necessary to hold the jaw in place for some days. For that
purpose the bandage for a broken jaw can be used.
