Jaw problem

Hi, Today morning while brushing I opened my teeth after that I was not able to close my mouth. The jaw joint came on each other. I tried shifting my jaw then somehow I was able to close it. Could you please tell me the reason?

It is due to tmj subluxation so don't open your mouth excessively large as it will worsen the problem

Please check weather you had pain and clicking sound from joint while opening and closing. The tmj dislocation r joint dislocation can be due to premature contact due altered relationship between upper and lower teeth r faulty filling etc..Analgesic may provide symptomatic relief..Consult your dentist soon
