Hello and welcome,
From the details provided ,you are assuming of Tmj disorder or inflammation associated.
An OPG radiograph will help to assess any infection associated.
I would advice you to visit an oral-maxillofacial surgeon as soon as possible.
Jaws has to be immobilized.
Avoid mouth opening too widely.
If there is inflammation,antibiotics has to be administered.
Splinting has to be done if there is fracture.
Physiotherapy will help to relieve inflammation in such cases.
Frequent warm saline rinse may be helpful.
Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

According to your clinical history i suppose that you are suffering from TMJ disorder.
I would suggest you to visit an Oral Surgeon and get the checkup done.
Take an OPG radiograph to confirm the diagnosis.
For treatment inflammatory medications can be given.
Application of moist heat towels on both the sides of the joint as many times as possible will be helpful.
In some cases bite splint therapy can be given.
Physiotherapy can be helpful.
Take warm saline rinses.


Hope this helps out.

Regards...
