In brief: Locked Jaw

Lock jaw is due to the disorder of temporomandibular joint, and you can not fool around with it.
You need to see an oral surgeon who will advice you what treatment to pursue.You can also consult your dentist.Some time it is due to degenerative disease of the joint and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs may help.But see the specialist.
