Sore jaw: it is hard to say what is going on without an exam, but your jaw may have been stressed out by being open during the dental procedure. And this can take some time to heal. But since there are also other things that can do this, the best thing to do at this time is to call your dentist out this. In the meantime eat a soft diet.. Ibuprophen can help with the pain in the short term.

TMJ disorder: Temporo-mandibular disorder is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain. Proper diagnosis is the key for the successful treatment. See an orofacial pain practitioner for a consultation and management.
