    Hi lavanya, regarding the sound from the mouth, is it happening everytime or only when yawning? It could be because of jaw lock. Have you seen people rubbing the thumb and middle finger and make a sound (in tamizh we call it 'soduku') while yawning? (use the thumb to flip middle finger) In mudra yoga it is a cure for jaw locks. you can try doing that while yawning or opening your mouth.

    Hi mimur,

    Thanks for your kind reply. Whenever i open my mouth to eat or after a long gap this sound is coming. Per day 7 times like that.

    For eating also some times i could not open as a result when i try to open hardly it creates click sound...

    In head, hand and leg also i m getting that sound.

    Regards,
    Lavanya

    Hi Lavanya,visit a dentist soon.Sometimes when we open our mouth too wide,this problem would have oocured.The dentist will palpate the muscles in cheek region and make them fix back.Its like ball and socket joint ,the muscles near mandible.They will teach simple exercises to avoid this problem.You have mentioned about splinting,its been advised so that mouth opening can be reduced and the joint will be functioning normally.They will remove splint after specific time.
    If he/ she finds much more deviation or any problem,they will advise for few x-rays and ask you to meet maxillo facial surgeon.I am a dentist and hope i cleared your doubts.

    lavanya,
    you should visit a dentist. This must have happened because of the jaw movement when you opened your mouth too wide while eating or yawing. This also happens if you grind your teeth in your sleep due to stress & tiredness. I have this problem. Better to consult the dentist ASAP otherwise slowly your facial muscles will start paining.
    Dentist may prescribe you splits or surgery depending on the severity. I used splints for 6 months & more, and i feel better when i use splints, though its not curable completely without surgery.
    I have no clue about the 'click; sound at head, hands & legs.....i dont think they are related.
    get well soon..God bless!

    Thanks Dear special for the reply.

    One General doctor told me to visit maxellofacial thats why i stopped dental doctor visit for splinting. I consulted to dental doctor and they told not to go with surgery but this spliting u have to put for some times like that.

    Is it related to hand sound, leg sound and head sound. Please suggest my dear friend
