You : You may have irritated the temporomandibular joint a bit when you tore into that pizza slice. I doubt you have any severe or permanent damage, but you never know. It would be a great idea if you took it easy for the next week or ten days...No big heros, keep your bites small, and give your jaw a rest. More liquid and soft diet than solids. Hot compresses with a wet towel before you go to bed will help relax the muscles and the joint. Keep your talking to a minimum. Basically, give the joint a rest. Otc antiinflammatory meds will help, too. Can't give you a typical average time. Everyone is different. If after the next week or so you still have problems, make an appointment with your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hope it helps. ...Read more
