My jaw has been popping back and fourth for months now, occasionally when I wake up it's somewhat locked, for a few minutes. It use to do all of this but eventually went away, will it naturally go away again?

  • You have to find out the cause for the popping and locking of the jaw. In some cases it is just beause of the anatomy of the TMJ that it popps if open very wide like for yawning and for that you have to be careful. There is no treatment for that but if it is due to some trauma or because of the improper occlusion which can be the cause then your dentist can diagnose it give the treatment accordingly.
