Fractured jawbone. Coloured X-ray of a human jaw showing a fractured lower jawbone (mandible). The fracture has occurred to the left side of the lower jawbone (bottom right, orange). The solid white regions are fillings. Symptoms of a fractured jaw range from tenderness and slight stiffness to loosening of teeth and severely restricted jaw movement. The shape of the jawbone means that a sharp blow that causes a fracture at the site of impact will often cause another on the opposite side of the mouth.
