Cracking popping and grinding

by Lacey
(Prunedale ca usa)

About a year ago I went to the dentist and got some teeth removed from the right side of my mouth on the bottom leaving no back molars...

This past month I have been experiencing cracking grinding and popping and lots of pain to the point while I was eating my jaw actually locked up and when it released there was aloud pop and grinding. I'm scared to eat and I can barely open my mouth and I'm in lots of pain please help
Sincerely lock jaw

Hello Lacey,
You have to get those molars replaced; a plate, bridge or implants. Do it.
