What causes a locked jaw?


A locked jaw is a painful muscle contraction of the jaw and neck that restricts the range of motion of the jaw, causing it to "lock". The intensity of the pain can vary and may be described as achy, throbbing, tender, or severe. If you're experiencing persistent issues with a locked jaw, consult a doctor or a dentist who specializes in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment. #lockedjaw
