In brief: TMJ and hearing

TMJ dysfunction can feel like an earache, but generally does not affect the hearing.
However, chronic TMJ can cause many head and neck disruptions, so it would not be surprising if it affected your hearing if there was advanced inflammation of the TMJ. If you are having hearing issues, you should see an ENT specialist, and you should see a dentist to treat your TMJ dysfunction.
