Q.

Kaak hak vas

Ek hoop iemand kan my help, ek het n probleem met my kaak wat vashak aan die regetkant! In die begin kon ek dit nog oopmaak en uithak maar gister het dit 2 keer so "gelock" dat ek dit glad nie kon oopmaak nie, dit het later vanself reggekom.
Iemand het gese dit kan met my verstandtande te doen he? Is dit waar? Ek kan nog nie voel dat hulle uitkom nie.
Help asb! Dis n baie ongemaklike storie die kaak wat so vashak.

the condition you describe occurs when there has been damage done to the TMJ (joint near the ear). This causes the jaw to "slide off" it's normal path causing the clicking sound. See your dentist who may refer you to a maxillofacial specialist.
