Two weeks ago I had a tooth prepped for a crown (my first). The next day my jaw locked up which had never happened to me before. I am finally able to open it a little. It’s still very sore and clicking more than usual. I am supposed to be getting the permanent crown later this week. I have no idea how that is going to get done given how sore my jaw is and the fact that I can’t open very wide. There is also a chance I may need a root canal done to that tooth. I am now terrified to go back to the dentist and am so stressed over the entire situation.
