Do you feel and hear ‘popping’ sounds back by your ear when you open your jaw? If you do, it is because the ligaments that hold your Temporomandibular Joint tightly together have been stretched during a past accident. Once stretched the ligaments never rebound to their original lengths allowing the various parts in the joint to function out of harmony. In some instances a dentist can modify the chewing surfaces of back teeth to lessen damaging forces in the joint. Just last week I performed a minor adjustment on a lady who has had popping joints for years. In just fifteen minutes her popping was completely gone.
