In brief: TMJ

Tmj is associated with movement disorders.
You must correct the jaw relationship to its proper position. The popping sound is the disc relocation back on the condyle so the clunk you hear on closing is the dislocation of the jaw. It is called a reciprocal click. You can see some videos on TMJ and movement disorders by looking up dr brendan stack and movement disorders. Hope this helps.
