I have a sister who is 16 years old when she eats she often complains of pain in the jaw, usually accompanied by sounds like the sound of bones and sometimes her mouth is locked, she can’t open normally and can’t be closed… what is this disease usually caused and how do I cure it?

Dear Elmach,

Jaw problems revolve around the structure in the jaw which is made up of joints and bones wrapped in muscles. Stiff jaw is one of the characteristics of problems around the jaw structure. Medically, stiffness in the jaw, or difficulty opening the mouth is known as trismus. Some conditions that can cause a stiff jaw include:

mandibular abscess or suppuration around the jaw Tetanus fractures in the jaw after an injury or collision with a tumor around the jaw such as a parotid tumor of the jaw muscle that is strained due to pain such as toothache The complexity of the jaw structure makes it difficult to diagnose without a complete and structured examination . For now, we can only advise you to see a doctor directly, so that it can be evaluated if that is the cause of your sister's stiff jaw. Here we attach a similar topic regarding trismus. Hope it is useful.
