Couldn't find what you looking for?


It started with toothache and I was in great pain. I started Keflex %00 for one and and infections still hugh. Swollen neck and difficulty swallowing...after a couple of days felt much better still have lockjaw..on day five went to emergency room ..and they have a shot of penicillin. I am 24 hrs later and still sore tooth and lockjaw..what next???


Should go to a dentist (or whatever doctor is needed) next, maybe a correction surgery or some antibiotics for the tooth infection. It seems like you have TMJD and TMJD can cause lockjaw/'clicking' or 'popping' jaw, and that leads to tooth wear and the like. But it's been over a year so you probably already solved this problem.
