Sometimes the solution to these issues can be a minor problem like a wisdom tooth that’s causing the lower jaws to close in an improper fashion or it could even be an over sized crown.

More often than not these are chronic problems which intensify over  a period of time and require and occlusion evaluation to determine if there are any irregular contacts between the teeth. These irregular contacts can lead to the muscles getting strained or the tendons which hold the cartilage(shock absorber) of the joints to slip over the joints leading to clicking or popping .
