Neuromuscular Dentistry - TMJ FAQQuestion:
Whenever I open my jaw there is a popping noise on both sides, just below my ear lobes. I read somewhere that this has something to do with the jaw not being aligned properly. Is this critical to be corrected? What will happen if left untreated? What is the treatment? Is it common? What causes it? Does it have anything to do with having teeth pulled? ...Pam in MD

You have a dislocation of your joints most likely caused by a poor alignment of your jaws and teeth. There are numerous causes, only a qualified specialist can help to diagnose your problem.
Most likely your lower jaw is biting too far back with poor support of your back teeth. Compression of the joint happens due to lack of good posterior tooth support. This leads to numerous problems. You need a dentist qualified to treat these problems. There are not too many around, so search carefully for proper help.
