I have trouble opening my jaw wide and it clicks when I open. Should I be concerned about this?

Jaw popping, clicking or difficulty in opening may be the first signs of temporomandibular (TMJ) jaw joint dysfunction. Even if no jaw pain is felt, it is important that we examine your jaw joints for possible pathology. Left untreated, a clicking or deviating jaw joint may lead to a ‘locked’ jaw or even more difficulty in chewing or eating.
