dislocated jaw: If the extractions were done with general anesthesia or IV sedation sometimes the jaw can be opened past where it should be and it can dislocate. If done with local anesthesia....Not likely see an oral surgeon asap.

Yes!!: Yes. If you feel your jaw has been dislocated in a surgery, see an oral surgeon ASAP.
