Why You Need to Speak With An Oral Surgeon When Ringing In Your Ears Won't Stop

Ringing In Ears Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group NY 10022
Having a constant ringing sound in the ears is annoying. Often referred to as tinnitus, what a lot of people do not realize is that it is not a condition in and of itself. Tinnitus is usually a symptom of something, and that something could be a range of factors.

A ringing in the ears can manifest in a range of different forms. Some sufferers report an actual ringing like that of a doorbell, a rushing sound or even clicking.

Persistent Ringing: Speak to an Oral Surgeon

Since tinnitus is something that manifests in the ears, it can be very tempting to go straight to an ear doctor. However, the ringing sound can also be caused by issues that an oral surgeon may want to take a look at. This is because there are a few issues that can cause tinnitus and these do not really involve being exposed to loud noises.

For example, impacted wisdom teeth (which have not fully grown out of the gums) can end up causing tinnitus. The same can be said for any abscesses that occur in your teeth. So, if you feel cavities forming in your teeth and a constant ringing in your ears, it may be best to come and talk to us so we can investigate the problem further.

Another major cause of tinnitus can be your temporomandibular joint, which is the joint between your lower and upper jaw. Sometimes clicking and popping sounds are heard when a person opens their mouth to a certain degree and this can contribute to ringing.
