I have been suffering from jaw pain and stiffness for a while now which can sometimes result in a headache and pain in the ears. I also can hear my jaws pop when I open my mouth wide. I visited a dentist regarding this issue and after an X-ray, it was concluded that I have a dislocated TMJ. However, the dentist said that I will most probably always be able to not open my mouth too wide and my jaws will almost always pop despite medication and physiotherapy. I have a hard time believing that this is incurable. Is my dentist right to say that it cannot be cured?

Your doctor may be wrong. TMJ-associated conditions can be treated and managed with better prognosis.
