    Jaw Popping: Why Does It Happen, and What Can You Do?

    Jaw popping is a common symptom of a problem with your temporomandibular joints, which are on either side of your skull and give your jaw the ability to open, close, and move from side to side. However, when one or both joints aren’t working as they should, you can experience jaw popping, which can be painful or can happen without discomfort.

    Symptoms of jaw popping may include pain in your face or jaw, or even difficulty opening your mouth all the way. You could also have swelling in your face, or experience what may feel like a toothache or an earache [1]. For some, jaw popping simply happens when talking or chewing, which can be frustrating.
