    Simple treatments for TMJ?

    I'm relatively new to TMJ. Only a couple months ago I was chewing a rather large piece of gum and I heard a pop in my jaw. I stopped chewing of course but ever since then at times when I would open my mouth, there would be a slight pop and a less common locking feeling in the right side of my jaw.
    This popping is only discomforting and doesn't really hurt. I've only had once where I opened my mouth very far, i think it was during a yawn that my jaw really locked up and the pop actually hurt for a bit. Other than that, the slight pops that occur randomly now and then don't hurt. The popping also seems to happen quite randomly some days I'll go without popping and others it feels every time I open my mouth.

    I only just realized now that when I open my mouth, it opens slightly to the left, barely noticeable but when I try to force my mouth to open straight, it locks up a little bit and then pops as well. I'm only 18 and pretty worried about this, is there anything I can to treat this?
