Q.

Lock Jaw - pain

My dentist removed three wisdom teeth at the time for me which was two years ago, ever since I have been suffering from a lock-jaw. Is there any way to correct this? I am thinking about putting in some crowns can I ask for this to be corrected too?

speak to your dentist about a mouth guard- this helps in certain cases of lock jaw. in certain cases, an operation is needed to correct this -but this is rare
