Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
You have a temporomandibular joint disorder and although it is common. TMJ
also always gets worse over time and never goes away until it is treated and it can be treated conservatively without surgery as long as the jaw is still clicking or popping.
TMJ clicking may have more than one cause ..
1) bad teeth alignment
2) unerupted wisdom tooth/teeth
4) joint infection (arthritis
5) growth differences between the two sides
Visit the dentist
and plan your treatment according to that.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
