If your problems last for more than a few days, or they are severe to begin with, call your dentist
for an evaluation. Initial treatment depends on the cause of your particular symptoms. Rest your jaw for several days or a week: eat very very soft food such as yogurt, soups, scrambled eggs, liquid supplements, applesauce, soft rice, pudding, and similar textures. Eat foods of a consistancy you can mash with your tongue. Avoid chewing gum, meats, ice, raw carrots, apples, salads, hamburgers.
Avoid caffeine and tobacco, Use crushed ice in a plastic sack or in a towel or try a sports-injury
ice pack. Do this several times a day for 10-15 minutes each time. Some individuals benefit from heat packs, especially if they are recovering from a locked jaw.
Take anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
