Hello Eren, thank you for the question.

The activity of opening and closing the mouth is regulated by the temporomandibular junction (TMJ). This TMJ is a joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal head bone (near the ear). Interference during the process of closing or opening the mouth can be caused by a disruption in the TMJ, which can be caused by inflammation of the gums or throat, inflammation of the lymph nodes in the neck or near the ear, an abscess in the throat or in the neck, trauma or injury concerning jawbone, etc. In addition to these conditions, there are several other diseases that can cause the jaw to stiffen, such as tetanus, which is usually preceded by an injury and infection by the bacteria Clostridium tetani.

To ascertain the cause, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and supporting examinations if needed such as blood tests, x-rays, and so forth. To reduce complaints, you should first consume soft foods until the complaints improve, avoid opening your mouth too wide, chewing food slowly, getting enough rest, and multiply the consumption of water.

Thus, hopefully it helps.
