Having Popping in my ears on left side...I have had every test done and been to all the ents. Still Have the pressure and popping...Ask my dentist if it could be top left molar, xrays showed nothing wrong with tooth...My regular doctor told me to go get it pulled out...Have you ever heard of this pressure and popping due to a molar? Should I get it pulled out? Thank you for taking the time to read my question, Godbless, Jerry Sanner

For this you have to visit an Oral Surgeon, who is an expert on TMJ as your problem can be related to Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ). If some infection or trauma is there in TMJ, sometimes it causes pressure and popping sound. Whether it is related to your wisdom tooth or not, cannot be commented upon at this stage without clnical exam and xrays. Your Oral Surgeon will take xrays specific for TMJ and do the needful.
