  • There are many reasons for the lock jaw. It can be because of some trauma or infection of the TMJ or it can be because of erupting wisdom tooth which is impacted and gets infected. For this you have to visit dentist . The dentist after doing the clinical examination and taking detailed history will make the diagnosis and accordingly do the treatment.
