Snap, Crackle, Pop

Is that your jaw?
Clicking or popping could mean trouble, that is if it comes from your jaw. Joint sound is one of the most recognized signs of temporomandibular disorders, commonly referred to as TMD. While not all jaw sound necessarily points to TMD, it could be an early sign and always should be checked out by your dentist, urges the Academy of General Dentistry, an organization for general dentists dedicated to continuing education.
