In brief: Possible

You describe the symptoms of tmj.
Trauma an certainly be a cause of the popping. You need an evaluation for a diagnosis and treatment. A prosthodontist, oral surgeon or well trained general dentist. In the meantime eat a soft diet. Avoid chewy foods. Ibuprophen can help with the pain if this is safe for you to take.

Sounds like it.
Have exam by TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
