Pardon my French, but that's a hell of a diet plan! Hope you're feeling better soon. Like you said, steak in a blender just wouldn't work.

As I said----- sometimes they just 'cure' themselves. Often when the person relaxes about it (such as sleeping).

Glad it all worked out.

I think I would still get it checked out. It could happen again if you don't really know what caused it.

I think so too. It was hard going through a whole day not being able to chew! I didn't think my Friday night dinner of applesauce and Greek yogurt was really worthy of the What's for Dinner thread.

Dawg---- be very careful if you do go to a dentist to find out what happened.
TMJ disorders are often a cash cow for some dentists. I know because I worked for one.

There actually could be something that shows on an x-ray that might need attending to. One of those is a 'slipped disc' between the mandible and the maxilla. It produces a clicking sound.

I've lived with this crepitus for decades and never had anything done for it. On the very rare times my jaw got 'stuck' just heat and relaxing helped it.

But some dentists will tell you that needs to be 'adjusted'.

Be VERY careful.

Thanks Cave. My dentist and hygenist didn't see anything wrong, and both chalked it up to TMJ, as in there was nothing they could do about it. I still think it might have had something to do with the crown and possible infection or an allergy to the new material that was used in it. I'll have to be even more assertive.

I think you were jsut talking too much, and your jaw muscles were rebelling for a short time.

Seriously, I'm happy that the problem corrected itself.

Yeah, that must be it, Chief If that's the case, you've never met DH! He can talk a blue streak around me! (and maybe you too!)
