Most of us can agree that one of the most annoying things on the planet is jaw clicking. No-pain solutions might be incredibly important to you if you're currently struggling with this problem – and for obvious reasons. Jaw clicking might be a serious issue, but you also don't want to subject yourself to unnecessary levels of discomfort while addressing this problem. After all, there's no sense in choosing a product that creates more problems than it solves.

If you're dealing with jaw clicking, no-pain solutions are available — you just need to know where to look. A clear example is the CustMbite Nightguard, which is specifically designed to be as comfortable as possible while providing consistent, reliable results. CustMbite also offers an upgraded Hard Surface Nightguard that can help you deal with particularly serious cases of bruxism and TMJ disorder — which can both lead to jaw popping and clicking.


If you feel your jaw popping when chewing, no-pain solutions could be within your grasp. But speaking or yawning may also lead to a clicking jaw. No-pain solutions are easier to obtain when you understand the root cause of this issue, which could be TMJ disorder. The TMJ is a complex joint, and it must be properly aligned with the appropriate muscles, ligaments, bones, and discs in order to move without restriction.

If you're dealing with a popping jaw, no-pain solutions can be easier to obtain when you understand the specific parts of your body that are causing the issue, such as a misaligned or eroded disc. Both of these issues are associated with TMJ. However, a clicking jaw may also be caused by a number of other things, such as overextension during yawning or eating.

If you hear or feel your jaw popping and clicking, you may wonder if it's associated with TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMJD). Though many people who are diagnosed with TMJ experience this symptom, in some cases, it's completely unrelated. No matter what the cause of your noisy jaw may be, it's wise to get it checked out by a dentist. If your clicking jaw is indeed associated with TMJ, you'll want to be proactive about treatment.

The TMJ is a complex joint, and many things must work together smoothly. The muscles, ligaments, bones, and discs of the joint must be aligned properly and move without restriction. One cause of a clicking jaw can be a disc that's out of alignment or eroded, which is associated with TMJ.

If you're dealing with clicking in jaw, no-pain solutions can also be easier to achieve if you pursue solutions that can target bruxism (otherwise known simply as teeth grinding). But with that said, jaw clicking when eating (no pain) can also be caused by excessive chewing gum use, arthritis, or certain injuries to the jaw. If you have a normal range of motion and there's no pain involved with your jaw clicking, you likely won't need to be treated for TMJ. Instead, you may have underlying causes like bruxism that cause your jaw to pop, and it's important to mention any concerns to your dentist and doctor so they can help you approach this issue with confidence and efficiency

Is Your Jaw Clicking? No-Pain Solutions Are Available – But How Do You Choose the Right One?

One of the easiest ways to address clicking jaw pain is with a mouthguard. But before you rush out and buy the first mouthguard you see on the shelf, you should know that some mouthguards can actually cause more pain and discomfort than they solve. For example, some mouthguards work by moving the jaw into awkward and painful positions. Not only does this fail to address jaw popping and teeth grinding, but it can also make these symptoms even worse by moving your jaw completely out of alignment

A much more reliable solution is a CustMbite Nightguard or Hard Surface Nightguard. These oral appliances are soft, flexible, and lightweight for a “barely-there” feel. Not only that but they'll keep your jaw in a completely natural position while protecting your teeth and promoting proper alignment. Better yet, these products are completely customizable, allowing you to wear a personalized guard that fits perfectly with your unique bite and mouth shape.

Mouthguards are able to relieve the pressure on your teeth, which can help to reduce pain on your teeth and jaw. TMJ mouthguards also allow your jaw to rest in a natural position, allowing the muscles to recover. It's one of the easiest ways to address TMJ symptoms - you can do it in your sleep!

Along with TMJ exercises and lifestyle and dietary changes, getting an FDA-cleared TMJ mouthguard from CustMbite is one of the most effective ways to reduce the pain associated with TMJ symptoms like a clicking or popping jaw.

Why Are CustMbite Mouthguards Better than the Competition?

At CustMbite, our goal is to bridge the divide between expensive dental appliances and subpar over-the-counter brands. Using our patented fitting material called Vistamaxx, we set out to create the best TMJ mouthguard available today. We consulted with dental professionals to design a mouthguard that provides you with a custom fit that's as good — or even better — than the one you can get from your dentist. We also wanted to be sure that CustMbite went above and beyond what you've come to expect from typical bite-and-boil TMJ mouthguards.

Old guards:

  • Tricky: Inferior guards require you to boil water and then hold the guard in your mouth for several minutes.
  • Bulky: Other guards rely on thick, bulky materials to provide protection.
  • Wimpy: Despite their thickness, bruxers can grind right through them.
  • Icky: Other guards are made of questionable materials that get stinky fast, absorbing saliva and bacteria that could even make you sick.

CustMbite TMJ guards:

  • Easy: All you need is a microwave and two minutes of your time to get a custom-fit guard.
  • Breezy: VistaMaxx makes a mouthguard so thin that you can talk, drink, and breathe comfortably.
  • Durable: Despite its incredibly thin profile, a CustMbite TMJ mouthguard provides top-notch shock absorption through even the heaviest bruxism.
  • Fresh: VistaMaxx is nonporous, so saliva and bacteria wash right off with cold water and a toothbrush or a dishwasher.
