Unhappy wisdom teeth - problem with jaw

Hello I am in a difficult position right now, see three years ago I got my wisdom teeth taken out and ever since that day my jaw does not work properly. Every time I open my mouth the left side of my jaw cracks and now it is starting to get to the point where I can no longer chew gum or even chew a bagel. My old dentist(he is now retired) told me that it would go away, but it hasn't it has only gotten worse. I don't think I can handle this much more and I don't know what to do about it. Does anyone have any advice?
