Open Wide Please
unable to open my mouth very wide could do it about 1 wk ago now having problem eating anything real thick. what is going on do I need to see a dentist or medical doctor?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. You should see your regular dentist first. You may be grinding or clenching your teeth, possibly at night. A common first step is a night/bite guard.
