Question:
I noticed a few weeks ago that with certain mouth movements I could not open it very wide.

Recently I was biting into a very hard piece of bread and now my jaw joints makes a grinding noise when I eat.

I have never experienced this - what would this be? ... Visitor from Dillsburg

Answer:
TMJ dysfunction.

You need to see a Prosthodontist or a tmj specialist to determine if bite adjustment is needed.

The tissues within the TMJ joint are not regenerative, meaning the longer the delay in getting treatment, the more irreversible damage is likely to occur.
