GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Do you have a clicking or popping in your jaw? Whether or not it’s painful, it may be a nuisance and you may wonder what’s causing it.

Our expert in sleep apnea and TMJ, Dr. Kathi Wilson, is here with more insight and treatment options.

Clicking/popping of the jaw joint falls under the fancy diagnosis of “reducing disc
displacement.” A more simple way to describe it is dislocating the jaw. It may or may not be painful and it can be quiet or loud.

Treatments are available to heal this situation without having to undergo surgery. Stay away from DIY treatments, they can often lead to more problems than you originally had.
