An exhausted student was attending a lecture. After 30 minutes or so, he lost interest and he let go with a tremendous yawn. To his great distress he couldn’t close his mouth -his lower jaw was locked open. What do you think would have caused it?

When he opened his mouth very wide, the mandibular condyle might have slid forward to the point that the joint might have got dislocated.
