Oral surgeon or ent: I would start with the emergency room docs and see who they have on call. They should have someone who can handle it.

Dislocated Jaw: A dislocated jaw means the lower part of the jaw has moved out of its normal position at one or both joints where the jaw approximates the skull. Both conditions are best treated by a qualified physician or oral surgeon.

Jaw vs disk: If your jaw is truly dislocated - jaw locked wide open - see an oral surgeon ASAP. if your jaw joint disk is dislocated - jaw joint clicks, limited opening, jaw joint pain - See a TMJ specialist.
