Jaw Lock after filling
Dear Doctors, One week back I got my (last teeth in lower left) teeth filled. There is no pain in the teeth as such but after treatment unable to open my mouth fully. It pains a bit while forcefully trying to open mouth. I searched over the net and found that its jaw lock problem happens in rare cases after dental treatment of hours. Could you please suggest some treatment/exercise to get back to normal? Usually how long does it takes to get complete recovery?
