Hi There,
Here is the thing, sometimes it is serious other times....no. I would MOST DEFINATELY go back to your oral suregeon and or dentist and explain to hime what has been going on since the wisdom teeth were extracted.

He might then tell you what it may be and he also might tell you, it's TMJ. There is a TMJ board that I post on and some information there might be helpful!

I hope this is helpful to you and let me know how it goes with your dentist and or oral surgeon! Hope everything goes well!

Ear

p.s. do you have any pain whatsoever? (sp?)

TMJD is when your jaw joints start to dislocate. Your seeing minor signs of TMJD. Go to the TMJ disorder board and read up on it. Wisdom teeth removal has been kn**** to cause TMJ problems after surgery just because they have your jaw open so wide for so long. Good luck man I have TMJD and there isnt much they can do but surgery and splint theropy

I had all of my wisdon taken out at once also... and after that I also developed TMJ.... I have the clicking all the time, and in the morning is when it is at it's worst. It has been about 16-17 yrs that I had the teeth pulled... so it has also been that long that I have had TMJ. I am lucky that once I quit my job that caused me alot of stress, the little bit of pain that I did have went away. BUT I still do have that clicking and it is more on the right side then the left. I do have a splint, but I really don't wear it, since I don't have pain.
Good Luck and hopefully your clicking won't ever turn to pain.. several people on the TMJ boards seem to have it really bad.
