Talk to Your Oral Surgeon About Ringing in Your Ears


Posted on 12/20/2016 by Dr. Michael Allard
A woman suffering from a ringing in her ears.
If you suffer from chronic tinnitus (the technical term for ringing in your ears), you may have already tried a number of remedies to no avail.

It may be time to consider whether temporomandibular joint ("TMJ" for short) surgery could help alleviate the condition. Here's more information on surgery to fix the ringing in your ears.

A TMJ Problem Can Lead to Ringing in Your Ears

While it is not true that ringing in your ears means you have a problem with your TMJ, TMJ issues frequently can and do result in tinnitus. If you have other signs of TMJ problems, such as discomfort in your jaw, a popping or clicking sensation when you open your mouth widely, headaches, or pain in your jaw joint, you may want to consider whether TMJ issues could be contributing to the ringing in your ears.

When the jaw joint-located near your eardrum-begins to swell, it can cause the eardrum to destabilize, resulting in the ringing in your ears that you hear. While there are a number of treatments for TMJ problems, depending on the severity of your situation, you may want to consider whether surgery for the TMJ issue could also bring relief from the ringing in your ears.

Is Surgery Your Only Choice?

There are several treatment options for TMJ problems. This being the case, you may not necessarily need to have surgery just to get some relief from the ringing in your ears. You should spend some time talking with your dental care professional to explore your options and determine whether surgery is the best one for you.

If you have questions about TMJ surgery, we are here to help you! Feel free to pick up the phone and contact us today!
