Can't open my mouth due wisdom teeth. It's now locked.. I am not able to open more then 1 inch. Surgery is compulsory for that? Is there any other options.

Wisdom teeth is the last teeth in jaw, it usually doesn't come straight and get stuck in jaw bone. Only option for getting away from recurrent infection and pain is to surgically remove the wisdom teeth. Please don't delay removal, visit your dentist and plan to remove wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth usually need to be removed and this requires surgical procedure depending upon how deep or tilted the tooth is.
