Good luck: Begin by defining the type of tinnitus and [if possible] the cause. Since there are no easy cures there will be claims from all sorts of "alternative" directions. Try them if you got good results from the tooth fairy. "White noise" delivered in various ways seems the way to go for the worst cases.

No treatment cure: Tinnitus may be the result of vascular disease, brain lesions and ear disease among others. The most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss, so a hearing test is necessary. Treatment depends on the cause. Start with a general medical visit. Then see an otolaryngologist to make sure there are no other symptoms and get a hearing test.
