Locked Jaw

History here is critical when it comes to dental issues like locked jaw. If from trauma then a full examination including radiographs and likely a CAT scan will be required. This may be available through your dentist or local Emergency Room. If the episode occurs from over extension of the mouth a reduction is a relatively simple process the can be accomplished by your dentist, primary care physician, physiotherapist or Emergency Room. Consider the wait time that may occur if attending your local hospital as the sooner attended to the better (so you may wish to explore the other sources before committing). Do not try to manipulate your jaw or let anyone else do so unless experienced to do so. Application of bilateral moist heat or cold packs over the joint area immediately in front of the ear may be applied intermittently if it provides relief.
