If its not really bothering leave it and over a period of time it will become normal. if pain is troubling you and there is any swelling in the area you can take tab paracetamol 500mg two times a day till the pain subsides.
If mild pain give rest to the jaw hot foamentation from tomorrow but if any swelling consult a maxillofacial surgeon rule out any fracture if non n you give rest to jaw it will b ok in three four days.
Have a painkiller (combiflam) on SOS basis if the pain persist after three days. Or there is difficulty in mouth opening then you will need an OPG radiograph from nearest diagnostic center and visit to a dentist.
Take a mild pain killer but get checked by dentist to rule out fracture of jaw or any cracks in jaws with help of X-ray.
