Temporomandibular: The temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) is located just in front of the ear and when there is irregular movement of this joint the jaw bone, one of bones of joint, can sublux from the TMJ socket, which invaginates the base of the skull.

Try to be careful about chewing gum and like foods, they stress the joint more and may cause you discomfort. ...Read more

ADD w/reduction: This could be anterior disc displacement with reduction, a temporomandibular joint disorder. Your eustacion tube is directly behind this joint and extreme pressure from the joint can cause abnormal hearing, usually it is more of a "stuffy" feeling in your ear canal. I would not consider this permanent, unless you never addressed the tmjd. ...Read more

Jaw clicking: wait or see someone now? About 10 days ago, after tearing into the crust of a pizza, I began to hear a crunching/clicking sound when I move my jaw. There is no pain and I can still move my jaw fully. Is this something I should go get this ch
You may have irritated the temporomandibular joint a bit when you tore into that pizza slice. I doubt you have any severe or permanent damage, but you never know.
It would be a great idea if you took it easy for the next week or ten days...No big heros, keep your bites small, and give your jaw a rest. More liquid and soft diet than solids. Hot compresses with a wet towel before you go to bed will help relax the muscles and the joint. Keep your talking to a minimum. Basically, give the joint a rest. Otc antiinflammatory meds will help, too.
Can't give you a typical average time. Everyone is different. If after the next week or so you still have problems, make an appointment with your dentist. ...Read more
