It might: Since we don't know if you do have TMJ dysfunction, the guard may or may not help. Fit will not be great, and that sometimes can make things worse. You can give it a try and if uncomfortable, then just don't wear it.

Since you have already seen an ENT doctor, consult with the doctor. Even though s/he referred you to a TMJ doctor, your ear & dizzy issues can be addressed once you contact your ENT doctor. It is common that ENT doctors and TMJ doctors work together, thus share same patients. I hope this helps.
