Hi. You should go for the extraction of the wisdom tooth as due to impacted tooth there's pain as well as it can harm other tooth due to food lodge at that side which inturn may harm other molar.

Hi. If wisdom tooth is impacted you should go for the extraction as its painful as well as due to improper cleaning over there food starts getting deposited which harms other tooth which is really important for chewing unlike that of wisdom tooth (3rd molar) which is ideally not required now.

Tmj paintmj disorders may cause mild to debilitating symptoms, such as:•pain while chewing •pain in the ear, face, jaw, and neck •clicking, grating, or popping sounds in the jaw when you open or close your mouth •locking of the jaw joint, headaches exercises for tmj pain relief 1. Relaxed jaw exercise rest your tongue gently on the top of your mouth behind your upper front teeth. Allow your teeth to come apart while relaxing your jaw muscles. 2. Goldfish exercises (partial opening) place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and one finger in front of your ear where your tmj is located. Put your middle or pointer finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw halfway and then close. There should be mild resistance but not pain. A variation of this exercise is to place one finger on each tmj as you drop your lower jaw halfway and closed again. Do this exercise six times in one set. You should do one set six times daily. 3. Goldfish exercises (full opening) keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth, place one finger on your tmj and another finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw completely and back. For a variation of this exercise, place one finger on each tmj as you completely drop your lower jaw and back. Do this exercise six times to complete one set. You should complete one set six times daily. 4. Chin tucks with your shoulders back and chest up, pull your chin straight back, creating a “double chin.” hold for three seconds and repeat 10 times. 5. Resisted opening of the mouth place your thumb under your chin. Open your mouth slowly, pushing gently against your chin for resistance. Hold for three to six seconds, and then close your mouth slowly. 6. Resisted closing of the mouth squeeze your chin with your index and thumb with one hand.

My husband bite teeth in sleep. As per my observation when he has more work pressure or any sort of tension or stress he does this. Because of this his lower incisor has become sharp. And he gets jaw pain. How can I help him? How to stop this or avoid this and why is this happening? Is it ok?

Based on your description, it seems he needs to control tension and I will give some tips for it. Moreover, he needs to train his mind by repeatedly self-counselling not to bite teeth and sleep in the best sleep position. His teeth for tongue biting can be examined by an experienced dentist.

I am having pain in my upper jaw whenever I try to open up my mouth fully. I think that its tetanus because I had a small accident yesterday in which a scooter hit me in my leg but the injury was small and I only got a drop of blood. I also see a hole above my wisdom teeth in my jaws. Please help me by telling my problem and what is its solution.

Hi Lybrate-user, The problem what I can feel is with your third molar (wisdom tooth) seems to be impacted and carious due to which infection is there due to which your mouth opening is reduced as tetanus symptoms usually emerge 7 to 10 days after initial infection.
