It’s very common that sports injuries to the head result in chipped, broken or avulsed teeth and even fractured or broken bones including the jaws. The jaw joint or TMJ is also susceptible to sport injuries. In some cases, your muscles or ligaments in your face may be torn or injured from getting hit in the face – even if the bones aren’t broken.
