Jaw Muscle Twitching

My jaw muscle on the left side of my face has started twitching since I had my teeth cleaned at my dentist two weeks agao. Prior to that I have never experienced this. Do I need to see a doctor.

Re: Jaw Muscle Twitching

Hi----I would take an anti-inflammatory such as advil, with magnesium lactorotate capsules...(ask your doctor if this is ok to take first)....and use moist hot heat against your cheek to help with the spasms. You can also gently massage the area several times a day...to see if it will break it up a bit. If it persists for more than a couple weeks, you may want to see if a mild muscle relaxer...even cut in half would help lessen the spasm. You can get those from your dentist as well. Good luck...
