Jaw Clicking Pain: Recognise and Fix It


“Click, Click, Click… Pop?!”, the noise of a clicking jaw is bad enough, but if you don’t do something about your jaw clicking it could develop into a condition that actually hurts. The most important thing is to seek treatment quickly as it will be easier to treat the earlier you catch it. (If your jaw is already hurting, don’t worry it’s not too late)

Jaw clicking pain is a symptom of a common condition called TMJ. About 30% of the population have symptoms of TMJ and most dentists and therapists are treating it poorly, dismissing it as stress related. Basically, the noise that you’re hearing is a displacement of the jaw joint; it’s popping in and out when you eat or yawn.

But what can help your clicking jaw now?

TMJ exercises are perfect for jaw clicking and jaw pain. Jaw clicking is caused by the misalignment of your jaw, because some of your tendons and muscles are pulling it slightly out of place.

To combat this TMJ exercises stretch, massage and strengthen certain muscles in your body which in turn release pressure on the tendons and muscles in your jaw. This allows your jaw to relax and find it’s correct position and relieves you of your jaw pain and clicking. So you won’t have a clicking jaw because it will function normally again and you’ll be able to yawn like a lion and chew on tough things again without pain, hooray!

How Long Until The Pain Goes Away?

Typically these exercises take about 2 – 3 weeks to work, depending on the condition of your jaw muscles. Some people cure their jaw clicking symptoms in as little as a few days and the pain disappears just a few days after that. These exercises aren’t a miracle cure, you can’t expect to do them once and then go off and start chewing on a nice big steak. To achieve the best results you need to commit to doing the exercises daily.

They are quick and simple, only taking about 10 minutes to do and they are easy to get right. To have the exercises sent to you, simply follow the link at the bottom of this page and they’ll automatically be sent to you.

Hi, I have this dislocation of my jaw and i been having it for 7 yrs but now two days ago its more painful and i can’t chew or even open my mouth to talk because it just dislocate easily and i have to get all my jaw and pop it back in, i want and need help thanks.

Hi Glenda,

That sounds awful, I feel for you. What I think might be happening is the ligaments in your jaw have been severely loosened and weakened for some reason. Do you clench your jaw/grind your teeth alot? This may have caused the problems.

The ligaments are meant to hold your jaw in position securely and obviously when they are loose and weak, your jaw can dislocate. The new pain could be caused by any number of things.

I strongly urge you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Hope this helps a bit.

To whom it may consern,
I’m having a lot of problems with my jaw. The problem I’m having is the click click pop problem and often a lot of jaw locking. This in turn is very stressful and annoying as I am a singing so this is causing me a lot freight. So I would be very thankful if you could email me some exercises I could do at home. I have been to the doctors and he has diagnosed me with TMJ so I went to the dentist and he is currently making me a night gaurd. So again I would be very grateful if you could send me some exercises.
thank you,

My tmj issue started with having som dental work done involving removal of a crown, then the temp then the new one. Days later cracking and popping. A month later seems worse with my jaw tired after eating. I am doing the free exercises for about a week. No noticeable change so far. Does it improve gradually. Should I see the dentist or give more time for the exercise to work. Thanks for your advice and i hope the exercise does the trick. I’m too broke to mess w/ a dentist too much.

Interesting. I saw a dentist on this problem and his exercises were similar but not identical to your free exercises. I added his to yours. He has me taking nsaids to bring down the inflamation. I suggest all who have this condition try your holistic approach and diet with non inflamatory food. Avoid sugar and red meat. You have got to through good health rules at this
