Jaw Pain - Trismus Disorders

Question:
I had my disc removed from my TMJoint about 7 months ago. Now my jaw locks closed a lot. I wake up in the morning with it locked and then it continues to lock throughout the day. I unlock it myself usually, even though it hurts. I was wondering if there is something I could do to prevent it from locking or to reduce the discomfort caused by unlocking it. ...Visitor from IL

Answer:
TMJ Surgery and Dysfunction is not fun. When the oral surgeon removes the disk they replace it with fatty tissue. If I were in your shoes I would tell my Oral Surgeon that your jaw is still having locking problems. Seek his assistance. Also try to reduce how far you open your jaw.
