Who should treat my crooked jaw? ortho or maxio surgeon

Hi, 14 year old had herbst off a few months ago, now his lower jaw is crooked and locked and painful.  Braces are still on.  Should this be treated by his orthodontist or an maxiofacial surgeon at this point.  Problem has just been identified.
What could have caused this? apparently there is bone on bone with very loud popping on one side.  MRI is pending.
Is there an appliance that may help with this rather than waiting for surgery at the age of 19?
