Lets solve your problem by elimination process. Horizontally impacted teeth as it is need to be removed. So first get these removed. Then re-assessment can be done for your problem. Hopefully your problem might go away after these teeth removals.

Dear sir, it would be wise if u to consult the doctor personally from whom u want an answer from rather than asking him an opinion in an online platform. Moreover nobody can tel you the diagnosis and do a treatment over the internet.

The problem you have mentioned here might be due to the impacted wisdom tooth. Options are there you might be developing TMJ problems. But before concluding you need to take one more investigation TMJ Tomography. If it is a TMJ problem first and foremost is to remove Impacted third molars(wisdom teeth). Also if you got any habits like teeth grinding, Night grinding or chewing food on one side or any other habits we have to address that also. For more clear diagnosis please send further details and Investigations
Next Steps
Visit a dentist and then take TMJ tomography and OPG if needed
