Why Ringing of the Ears Points to an Oral Issue
Posted on 6/8/2020 by Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group
Why Ringing of the Ears Points to an Oral IssueOne of the most frustrating and, at times, maddening conditions that people ever have to deal with is ringing in the ears. It's bad enough when it's only temporary or infrequent, but when it becomes more regular or develops into tinnitus it can become unbearable. And one of the biggest problems with this issue is that many times the cause or source of the ringing is undetectable. But one of the possible causes that is rarely investigated is that of a dental issue. So, with that in mind, we would like to present to our readers a few of the ways in which oral conditions can impact ringing in the ears.

Misalignment Due to TMJ



Perhaps the most common link between tinnitus and dental problems is with those who suffer from TMJ or TMD. The side effects or the symptoms of this condition such as chronic jaw pain, as well as misalignment, which interferes with the blood and fluid flow to the ears and brain, can play a significantly impactful role on ear ringing.

Other Possible Connections



For folks who are on pain killers for serious or chronic oral pain, they can often times end up taking more than the prescribed amount, which can lead to possible secondary issues such as hearing concerns such as ringing or hollow sounds. Another connection is bruxism, or grinding or the teeth, especially at night while you are asleep. This activity can many times produce tinnitus-like symptoms.

To learn if the ringing in your ears might be related to a particular dental health issue that you are experiencing, simply call or come by our office as soon as you have the time. If you get on top of this problem, you may find that relief that you have been so desperately seeking.
