Wisdom tooth

Due to wisdom tooth, I am having problem in chewing and also sometimes it pains. Also, a tic-tac sound comes from my jaw when i wide open my mouth. I am currently wearing night splint, after which that tic-tac sound doesnt come. So, i think the problem is due to the wisdom tooth. I want to know how much will it cost to remove the same? I have attached opg xray.
