WHY DOES MY JAW POP?

Jaw popping is caused by changes inside the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) space. This usually is due to a change in form or position of a cartilaginous disc that should normally move in harmony within your joint. When this movement becomes disrupted, it can cause sounds (clicking, popping, grinding), altered function (limited range, uneven opening) and/or pain (including headaches). Sounds don’t always indicate serious problems and situations don’t always get worse, but you can contact Dr. Foote if you have questions or concerns about your TMJs.
