It would be best to see a TMJ specialist to see if maybe there's a way to either 1) pop it back into place or 2)evaluate the area and possible get some exercises, home care and medication to help the area heal.

You should probably get checked out by a TMJ specialist to see if your symptoms are related to the TMJ popping.  There is a definite possibility with the muscle strain that opening and closing the jaw as well as pain is related to the TMJ but I'm not sure about the mouth dryness at this point.  

As for the teeth moving, it probably isn't due to the wisdom teeth as people without wisdom teeth have their teeth move as well.
