Oral Surgery May Be Required to Stop Your Ears from Ringing
Posted on 6/8/2020 by Jeannie Molato, DDS
An earache is one of the most difficult pains to handle. Apart from the fact that even listening to a conversation can make your ears hurt, it also starts ringing when you try to speak with someone or chew food. This can get irritating and the pain can travel up to your head, making the situation even more difficult to handle. If you are wondering why your ears are ringing, then you may want to ask yourself whether you have a toothache or you suffer from TMD.
People who have an infection or abscess in their teeth or those who suffer from temporomandibular disorder (TMD) are often susceptible to ear ringing problems.
Why You Should Visit Us?
If you have a toothache that you have been ignoring for a while, chances are there is an infection present in it. This infection can spread to your gums and even reach your jaw bone. When the infection starts spreading, it also causes a ringing sensation in your ears. This will continue and it may even get worse unless you treat the root cause of the problem.
One of the major reasons for ear ringing is an infected wisdom tooth. The infection of a wisdom tooth can spread a lot faster since it is closer to the ears and considering the fact that a wisdom tooth seldom grows straight, extracting it is the best solution.
Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a result of constant teeth grinding in many instances. When you suffer from this disorder, you will likely go through a lot of discomfort, including ear ringing. If you want to get this treated, our experts can help up by designing mouthguards that you can wear at night.
Irrespective of what has caused your ears to ring, our experts will be able to find the root cause and provide you with long-term solutions so that the condition does not recur. If your ears have been ringing for a while, visit us so that our experts can take a look at it.
