How to Reset a Dislocated Jaw?

Answer

The most common way to dislocate your jaw is to have a huge yawn that dislocates the jaw and locks it open. The best way to fix it is to pull gently but forcefully down on the jaw. It will hurt, but needs to be done to pop the jaw back in place. It is best to go to the doctor, than to do it yourself.
