Ring, ring... An awful noise in my ears. Is it TMJ?

How come your ears seem to be giving your so much trouble, yet your doctor has never found a problem? You explain your symptoms, your doctor shines a light, takes a look around and indicates nothing is wrong.

Still, you know the whistling sound is real and you know you are occasionally hit with waves of dizziness so strong you are forced to hold on to something.

Ear congestion, persistent earaches, dizziness, vertigo, ringing or whistling in the ears. . . . these can all be traced back to TMJ.

We believe that healthy dentistry should be CLEAR, available, and affordable TO EVERYONE

Can TMJ make my ear hurt?

Technically (and medically) here’s what is going on: The over-activity of your jaw can make your ear canal sensitive and can result in a multitude of symptoms.

Your ear has two important muscles: The tensor tympani (it attaches to the ear drum, stabilizing it from the excess vibration caused by loud sounds) and; The tensor levi palatini (it attaches to the Eustachian tube helping to equalizing pressure within the inner ear… it is what “unplugs” your ears when you chew gum or suck a hard candy in an airplane).

Because of jaw misalignment and the over-compensation of these muscles, it can lead to a multitude of symptoms related to your ears. These symptoms are the result of having a strained bite when the jaw is not aligned.

How do I get rid of ear pain from TMJ?

The jaw area is a complex network of muscles and nerves. When the bite is misaligned – muscles and nerves throughout the head, including the ears, can be affected. The most common and obvious effect is persistent ringing or whistling in the ears. It can also lead to:

  • dizziness
  • vertigo
  • ear pain or discomfort (earaches)
  • impaired or restricted hearing
  • congested or stuffy feeling in your ears
  • sinus pain

By stabilizing and realigning your jaw, your bite will be restored back to its normal position, relieving the problems in your ears caused by the misaligned bite.
