Jaw lock is when you are unable to move it and requires a maneuver of lower jaw to unlock it.. On the other hand jaw clicking (tuk tuk sound) is a frequently occurring phenomenon..
If you are experiencing clicking which is asymptomatic (that is without any pain) then it will eventually subside by doing certain jaw exercises and taking precautionary measures.
Whereupon if you are experiencing lock jaw situation then it requires thorough clinical examination via radiographs, extra oral and intra Oral examination .. But again after careful diagnosis proper treatment can be carried out to resolve your problem. Need not to worry at all.. Because worrying also is one of the cause of jaw lock.. Hope this answers your query

You need to go get yourself checked.. The treatment is staged which requires multidisciplinary team approach.. May involve an Orthodontic specialist and a Maxillofacial specialist to be precise.. Without proper diagnosis no one can tell you exact treatment..

Get urself checked by maxillofacial surgeon. You have TMD, thats causing locking. For now take nuberol forte twice a dat for 5 days, eat soft food, massage warm olive oil near your ear, and put hand under your lower jaw while yawning or laughing to give support to your jaw
