|Ringing in the ears is a condition known as tinnitus. Roughly 15% of Americans suffer from this condition. Roughly 40% of those people suffer from chronic tinnitus. For any of them it is more than a minor inconvenience. Instead, it is a debilitating condition. Instead of trying to ignore the ringing in the ears, let our office know about it and it is possible that we can find out the cause and come up with a solution.
Reasons for Ear RingingThere are different types of tinnitus. Some people suffer from temporary tinnitus. This could come from listening to loud noises, problems with the teeth or some other treatable condition that is also temporary. Temporary tinnitus will go away in a relatively short period of time often without doing much to treat it.
Chronic tinnitus is something that continues to occur without stopping. It can also come from different medical conditions that end up affecting the way the ear works. Chronic tinnitus can interfere with the way a person is able to function in their daily life. It is possible to treat chronic tinnitus by treating underlying conditions that cause the ringing in the ears.
Tinnitus and TMJTemporomandibular joint disorder is a condition that affects the joint that connects the jaw to the skull. The muscles that make the jaw work can cause problems with the jaw. The result for many people can include jaw pain, popping sounds in the jaw and the jaw locking in place occasionally. TMJ is also connected to people who suffer from chronic tinnitus.
The TMJ is located by the ear. This allows it to impact the ear canal and can lead to ringing in the ear. Treating the TMJ can help reduce or eliminate the ringing in the ears that a person has. It will provide a person with relief in many other ways as well.
