In brief: Oh boy...

Yes you may, but.
.. Please do not extend the level of home remedies to treatment of jaw dislocations. ! see an oral surgeon, or atleast an experienced dentist..

In brief: Dislocated Jaw

A broken jaw is a fracture in the jaw bone.
A dislocated jaw means the lower part of the jaw has moved out of its normal position at one or both joints where the jaw approximates the skull. Both conditions are best treated by a qualified physician or oral surgeon.

In brief: Yes and no

If you've never placed it back, see an oral surgeon.
Some, who have repeated jaw dislocation, develop a personal technique to put it back, which usually, not always works. Requires manipulation back into place.
