There could be various reasons for this. The breaking or" clicking" sound is related to the jaw joint called tmj. It happens as a result of trauma or more commonly bruxism among many other causes, kindly visit the nearest dentist to get a physical examination done.
Clicking sound of joint is common. Dont open to much. We will advice occlusal splint and muscle relaxants and jaw exercises.
We call it as TMD or MPDS Need to do the moist heat application and jaw exercise. But before doing it get a consult from the dentist .
