Why does my jaw make noise while chewing or yawning?

If you are hearing a popping or clicking noise from your jaw while chewing, moving, or yawning, it could be from your jaw joint. Your jaw joint plays a vital role in the basic opening and closing movements of the jaw. A TMJ dysfunction can cause a popping or clicking sound, but it’s not always the case. Sometimes, a normally functioning jaw can still produce a popping sound. If you are hearing any noise from your jaw while talking or chewing, you must get in touch with a TMJ specialist Albuquerque to evaluate your situation and identify the reason for the noise. If the issue is serious, alternate treatment options are suggested.
