Thanks for writing to us.

Jaw pain occur usually due to inflammation or dislocation of t e m poro mandibular joint.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical palpation as well as O P G investigations done.

Meanwhile,avoid anxiety,stress.

Avoid mouth opening too widely.

Analgesics along with muscle relaxants has to be administered.

If jaws are dislocated,splinting has to be done.

Take care.
