Namaskaram, Ideally, the TMJ should not click. It can be suggestive of a begining of a TMD. Reasons for it can be listed as, improper alignment of teeth, poor posture, unconcious grinding of teeth, stress and anxiety or a recent trauma. Treatment could be devised based on the cause. Splints can be advised by a dental professional under careful examination. Pain therapy using lasers are available which will help you in the long run. Getting an appointment with a dental professional would be advisable. It is usually not something to worry about. A TMD with pain can be a little alarming, but it is not wise to wait till then.

Hello Madam, This popping  and clcking sounds are due to some micro trauma that cold be  bearing stress on your jaw joints called TMjoints. If it is not associated  with any pain it is fine but either way it could be suggesting  early signs of TM joint discrepancy.. It is better always to get yourself  examined by a Dentist and get suitable advise Dr.Vathsala

No, its not a serious issue. That clicking sound is because of TMJ ( Temoto Mandibular Joint ) abnormality. No need to worry.
