Does your jaw “pop” on occasion and is this action accompanied by mild pain? Jaw popping can be caused by numerous situations and while you should always see your dentist, it is still wise to take a look at three common situations.
- Those who are in the habit of grinding their teeth could experience jaw popping.
- Arthritis is another cause (in older individuals).
- An acute injury (such as one associated with sports) might cause the jaw to pop temporarily.
“Jaw popping refers to a clicking sound from the jaw.”
