Jaw pain. Happened after root canal on L molar. Lower jaw tilted to L when mouth is opened. Dentist said do jaw exercise. RIght remedy? Other option?

Also jaw had to be opened wide and for extended time so muscles and joint strained. Your dentist wants you to care for your strained jaw with exercise, ice and heat, soft diet and controlled opening.

I am an adult and got sealants on my teeth one year ago. I am having tooth & jaw pain that sometimes gives me headaches. It radiates up into my head. Is it possible I would need a root canal? How likely is that scenario?
Sealent issues: It would be unlikely that the sealants caused the the pain, especially if the discomfort did not start for a year.
