Hello, good night.rn2 weeks ago, my husband fell off the motorbike and sustained injuries to his right temple, upper mouth, chin, stomach, chest, and one of his upper front teeth fell and then another broke. He was taken to the puskesmas on the day of the incident. And given pain medication. However, after a week later his mouth was difficult to open. He said it hurts when you open it wide. Laugh a little, it hurts. How’s that? Is it really the effect of the wound on his chin or what? Please explain.rnThank you
