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
