I have developed clicking in predominantly one jaw , worst when I eat. Dentist is suggesting a mouth guard but I am wondering if taping the jaw would have any benefit

You are on track for joint (TMJ) degeneration. I have that too. It is best to minimize stress to your jaw such as not chewing gum. You may consider evaluation from TMJ specialist on the most appropriate mouth appliance therapy.
