My ears ring from TMJ. What can I do?

See your dentist

Ear
First, see your MD to make sure you don't have an ear problem. It he/she says you don't, then you may find relief by seeing a dentist. Sometimes jaw joint (TMJ) problems can contribute to ringing of the ears (tinnitus). Your dentist may suggest a bite appliance. Also, some medications can produce this side effect.

Taking ear medication to treat jaw joint is like wearing a corn plaster for a sprained ankle. See your Dentist. Ask if examination by Orthodontist is in order.
