What causes my jaw to pop when I open it?

At the temporormandibular joint area, there is a pad of tissue that lies between the jaw bone and cranial base (base of the skull). The major reason for the popping is the mouth opened in an extremely wide manner. This causes the jaw bone to get displaced from the pad or disk. The condition need not be treated if the popping off or locking of the jaw is not associated with pain.
