What was the reason for the dental examination? Have you had an active infection in your oral cavity? Open mouth too wide in a prolonged period may cause a muscle strain which may cause discomfort with chewing but not swallowing. However, whatever the cause is, those symptoms should be self limited and you should be fine within the next 3 days. Take care.

Post-surgical soreness. Dental procedures are for the most part surgical. you now have sore soft tissues. Speak to your Dentist about what to do to mediate the soreness.
