not sure what this is...maybe tmj?

A couple days ago, I opened my mouth to take a bite of a sandwich & I felt something 'pop' in my jaw.

Since then, I have had some trouble clenching my jaw, chewing, etc. There also sounds like there is a clicking noise in that side when I chew.

I am not sure what type of dentist to see about this. I just visited my normal dentist about a week ago for an unrelated problem & I'm not sure if I should go back to see him about this. Should I wait to see if it clears up? Could it just be a muscle or something? Any ideas would be welcome!

Hi there

It could almost certainly be TMJ you have. The cracking noise is one of the main symptoms of TMJ. My advice is to go back to your dentist for some advice.

Good luck

Definately visit your dentist, he may not be able to do anything but he can probably send you to a tmj specialist or a facial pain doctor. In the mean time don't over do your chewing.

Good Luck
