Jaw Clicking FAQ
Aargh... my jaw clicks and it is driving me insane! It only clicks on the right side, and when I yawn. Why is it doing this? Ccould it be anything to do with the fact that I had a brace a few years ago? It only started after I had the brace removed. Is it causing any damage or changing my face? ...

Jaw clicking can be the result of normal anatomy in your joint. However,when you yawn you may be opening your mouth too far, much farther than the anatomical limit of the ligamwent holding your jaw
together. The normal mouth-opening limit for most people is 2.5 finger widths wide. If you limit your yawns to this, your click may subside.
