Hello Dorcas,
as you said you went for your fractured jaws to get wired after a month of geting fractured why you took so much time to go for the treatment friend this delay might be the reason for your present mouth opening problem,but dont worry your muscles have got stiffed you ask your doctor for exercises and medicens like muscles relaxants.
Thanks and good wishes for your health
