Dentist 's  Response

Welcome to health care magic forum.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Your jaws has dislocated due to TMJ disorders,heavy loads applied on jaws.

I would suggest you to get a thorough clinical as well as OPG radiograph done to rule out the cause of Jaw dislocation.

If required,intermaxillary fixation or splinting has to be done.

Jaws has to be immobilised for a while.

I would advice you to get physiotherapy done.

Antibiotics and analgesics with muscle relaxants has to be administered.

Hope this helps.
