Author information

  • 1University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA.


Trismus is a common complication. In many ways, it is a pretty innocuous one, but for the patient, it could give rise to many constraints, including social injunctions that can cause anxiety and anger. In a few instances, there have been instigation of lawsuits. Therefore, it is important for clinicians to be aware of this significant condition, its primary causes, and its treatments.
