In brief: SEE A DOCTOR!

If you have a dislocated jaw you need to see a doctor immediately.
Go to the emergency room right now and get that taken care of!

In brief: ASAP

Just like any other dislocated joint, the longer you wait the harder it will be to get back into place and the more damage will happen.
Usually a dentist or oral surgeon can relocate your jaw in just a few minutes. The relief can be extremely quick after relocated.
