Afternoon, it’s been about 1 week that my jaw is difficult to open wide, if forced by my right jaw, it sounds like “kltuk”. I wonder what the symptoms are and how to treat them

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Complaints of difficulty opening the mouth accompanied by a clicking sound when opening the mouth or chewing is likely due to a disruption in the joints in the jaw called the temporomandibular joints (TMJ).

Symptoms and signs of disorders in TMJ include:
1. Pain in the jaw
2. Pain around the ear
3. Difficulty chewing or pain when chewing
4. Difficult to open or close the mouth
5. There is a click when opening the mouth or chewing
6. Pain in the face area
Causes of disruption in TMJ include:
1. TMJ Dislocation
2. Cartilage damage or arthritis
3. History of injuries or blows to the jaw area

In this condition the doctor needs to conduct a direct examination to assess the origin of the current complaint, namely by observing whether there is a deformity of the jaw, listening to the clicking sound in question, or by touching the area of ​​pain to find the source of the abnormality.

Some conditions of disturbances in TMJ do not require special therapy because they can recover spontaneously. However, if symptoms persist or in fact TMJ dislocation occurs, then several treatment options are needed that include medication, physical therapy, repositioning, use of assistive devices, surgery or other invasive measures. Therefore you should consult further with your doctor or dentist to get adequate treatment.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
