Lockjaw (Tetanus) treatment near me

The temporomandibular joint is one of the most highly utilized and underappreciated joints.
Mechanically, the TMJ allows you to open and close your mouth, and to a lesser extent, extend and move your jaw from side to side. Functionally it facilitates eating, talking and facial expressions. Lockjaw also known as Trismus, is a condition in which the jaw muscles undergo spasm.

Lockjaw Why

» Lockjaw affects the whole jaw bilaterally. It can occur due to a sudden jerk, and becomes severe in a few hours. Inability to open your mouth completely is the most common symptom of lockjaw and this affects mastication and speech as well.


Lockjaw Reasons

» Cancer: In some cases, carcinoma removal or radiotherapy can cause damage to the jaw and hence restrict its movements.
» Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is one of the prime reason for Lock Jaw. TM Disorders can develop due to arthritis, inflammatory disease or facial trauma.
» Infections around the oral cavity such as tonsillar abscess can also affect the movement of the joint.
» Tetanus may occur due to a life-threatening neurotoxin that is released by Clostridium tetani. This is a bacterium commonly present in the environment. This toxin can cause TM Joint muscle spasm. Tetanus is a huge risk factor for lockjaw. In fact, lockjaw used to be called Tetanus.
» There are a number of nerves and muscles that control jaw movement, and due to their anatomical arrangement, lockjaw is typically characterized by a jaw position that is partially open.

  • Why do I frequently get lockjaw?
    It depends on what triggers your lockjaw. For example, if your muscles get stiffened due to bruxism, then you need to consider your stress level and alter the lifestyle. In case, it is due to tetanus which contracts the muscles of the head and neck, vaccination and proper therapy would help to overcome the issue.
  • Can lockjaw be self-managed?
    Lock jaw may occur due to various reasons and is influenced by certain aggravating factors. Its treatment modality may vary accordingly.
  • How will I know that I have lockjaw?
    You would find it difficult to open your mouth completely. Your masticatory muscles and joints will be tender and painful. You may not be able to speak or eat because of restricted mouth opening.
