In brief: Consultation.

In some cases , behavioral modification may help prevent the jaw from dislocating.
Actively trying to avoid situations which cause the jaw to dislocate would be a start ( avoid opening wide to bite into a big sandwich, for example). If despite your best efforts, the jaw is still dislocating regularly, a consultation with a dentist and possibly a TMJ specialist at a dental school may be helpful.

In brief: Disk vs jaw

Depends Do you mean your jaw dislocates out of the socket? Or you disk clicks .
Former, see oral surgeon. Latter, see TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
