    On one side of my Jaw I get this horrible pain when i open it to a certain length or when i move it a certain way. I had it a week ago but seemed to click it back into place, like i moved it to the left and lifted up and it clicked. Surely it won't have popped out as my face would be swollen, jaw hanging and immense pain. :confused1:

    I only get it when i open my mouth. Mum says i may be grinding my teeth in my sleep and its caused it to become tense? I'm not convinced...
    What do you guys think??

    Sounds like you dislocated it they do just pop back into line easily but you can suffer pain for a while after.

    If it were me I'd try not to open my mouth to that certain length and certainly wouldn't attempt to move it in that certain way! ;)

    Apart from that have you got the right teeth in? :lol:

    I think your mum is right the dentist will be able to tell by looking at your gnashers & you can get a splint thing they help :)

    Sounds like mine.. i have properly disclocated mine twice riding horses.. I was meant to have work done on it years ago and now if i open my mouth too wide it someties slips, slightly hurts then if I can I can get it to go back.. I think I have loosened the connections... It happens if I laugh loads or try and eat hard sweets.:frown:

    I would get it checked out though.. I used to have to wear a special gum shield, When I slept, rode or if I was concentrating cause I used to tense my jaw and used to make it worse..

    i have a similar thing with my jaw, sometimes if i open my mouth too wide it sort of pops out of place.

    Also when im stressed i tend to clench my jaw without realising it and if i have had a few stressful days i get major jaw ache... could this be whats wrong? u might be clenching your jaw and not realising it??
