Ringing and aching in the ears are common symptoms for patients who have TMJ dysfunction. Your temporomandibular joints are located just beneath your ear canals, and if the connective tissues that surround your joints become inflamed, which is also a common side-effect of TMJ dysfunction, you may experience ear pain. Our team at Sleep Solutions by Michel Dental can examine how your condition is impacting your hearing and help reduce inflammation of muscles and tissues surrounding the TMJs with customized therapy as well as helpful exercises.
In addition to ear pain, you may also experience neck pain as a result of underlying TMJ dysfunction. A study published in 2015 in Biomed Research International found that 82% of people experiencing neck tenderness result from TMD. While it’s not always a perfect cause and effect relationship between TMD and neck pain, it is a good idea to receive an evaluation if you’re experiencing neck pain in combination with any other signs of TMJ dysfunction so you can receive proper treatment.
