The jaw can in fact stop up in a locked position, which is very unpleasant. We call Closed Lock. There are several causes, but the most common are muscle spasm in the jaw musculature and articular disc displacement.
In case of a displacement, the articular disc fastens in the front of the jaw joint. This will block the mouth for opening up wide, limited to only 25 mm, and represents great pain. Other reasons could be severe attrition of the jaw joints, arthritis, inflammation or acute damage.
