Do you suffer from constant ringing in your ears? If this is joined by painful headaches, jaw ache, ear ache and muscle pain in your facial muscles then this can be helped or at least reduced. Tinnitus refers to the ringing, hissing, humming or buzzing in the ears with no associated external noise. This can become very distressing for the person suffering with the condition and can affect daily life immensely. There are no known cures at the moment with advice for people who have this condition consisting of trying their best to ignore the noise. This isn’t always possible.
We are one of the only practices in the UK to offer jaw joint analysis which can assess if you have any problems with your jaw joint, along with this we assess the way in which you bite together to see if the bite is even or if you do grind your teeth. It measures where you bite and what pressure is going where. This can help establish a treatment plan in order to prevent grinding and relax muscles. This is not a cure for tinnitus but it can help relieve the symptoms.
