Hi there. While tetanus shots are mainly preventative and make sense whenever there is risk of transmission, it is not a very common infection. In fact, average annual incidence in the US is about 0.10 per 1 million population. This translates to 1 in 10,000,000 individuals, and only about 30 cases per year. TMJ is far, far, far more common and more likely in your case. :-)
Sounds good. No need to worry in meantime.
