I think you are suffering from third molar (wisdom tooth ) infection causing trismus. Get your x-ray done for better evaluation.for the time being do lot of warm saline gargle and jaw opening exercises.donot take antibiotics and pain killers without prescription.

Hi a proper clinical examination has to be done followed by instructions (jaw exercises) please visit a dentist. In the mean while don't open your mouth too wide & be cautious while yawning.

A proper clinical examination will be required followed by one or more X-rays (like OPG or tmj view)..... appropriate treatment plan can be revised only after correct diagnosis, so please visit your dentist soon for proper relief from your symptoms....

Your Temporomandibular joint problem may be due to third molar infection,  poor occlusion or bad Bruxism habit.. Plz give me a proper history to evaluate u further. Intraoral pictures also would help.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre.  God bless u...

Hi there I understand your concern... Painful jaw opening or limited opening due to pain may be due tmj joint disorder...subluxation or dislocation of joint can cause these problems... Malocclusion of teeths may be underlying issues... Consult nearest dental surgeon they will guide you further.
