Relax and...: A dislocated jaw can be very scary. The anxiety experienced can cause a person to tense their muscles, which makes repositioning more difficult. If the patient breathes slowly and relaxes and moves the jaw from side to side while slowly trying to open and close should help correct this. If this does not work, a dental professional is trained to manipulate the jaw and "reduce" the dislocation.
