Mouth wired shut?

Total bummer. On the bright side, you are probably grateful that you can still use the internet.

I broke my jaw several years ago and was surprised by the lack of information for dealing with this predicament. I learned a few tricks that I wanted to share with others. So, here they are. I hope they help you, and if you have some tips that you'd like to add to this site, just send me an email.

It's no fun being wired shut, but time will pass, and you will heal. You will probably lose a few pounds in the process too. Most of all, you'll gain a greater appreciation for friends, family, and food!

Drink up!
