It's called TMJ. It can end up to be a problem if you continue to keep having it happen its caused from minor fluid being caught in the jawbone line. Most people can and do live with it fine. Others get it worse and require medications ect.

YOu are cracked if you chew gum. Why would any one wish to grind sugar into their teeth? It si the first step to being a smoker, you know that don't you?

That's not true... Gum is wonderful for your teeth, granted that it's sugar free. And why do you think that chewing gum will cause a smoke addiction if they have nicotine gum to help a person quit smoking?

It's pretty common. Don't sweat it.

Your jaw is out of place a little. You can get this fixed by an orthodontist, but it will take time.

I have the same problem. I had to stop chewing gum because my jaw would get inflamed from all the popping.
