Cold spray along the masseter muscle can generally relieve muscle spasm associated with post-op trismus. If you are not sure what I described,seeing a physical therapist is advised. In addition, appropriate administration of antibiotics can shorten the duration of trismus. Trismus tends to resolve within a week.
