Jaw is Locked Up
Over the years, I have had some clicking in my jaw and a few times the jaw would feel locked up but never stayed that way for long. Ever since visiting the dentist two weeks ago and having a tooth pulled, my jaw has been locked up. I have pain when I try to brush my teeth, and if I try to push my lower jaw out to line up my teeth there is pain near my ear. How do I get my jaw back on track so to speak?

Prolonged dental procedure tends to trigger a diseased  tmj problem. Your problem appears to be closed lock, which may result from disc displacement without reduction or muscle spasm. Seeing a tmj specialist to reduce the disc ASAP is advised.
