  • Ringing in Ear from new Dental Bridge: I recently had a permanent bridge placed. Soon after I started to getting symptoms of ringing in my ear. Can this noise be caused, directly or indirectly, by my new bridge? The bridge spans 7 teeth. Who do I need to see? ...Visitor from Wheatley Heights     (answer)

  • Ear Pain and TMJ: I have had TMJ for close to 16 years. I have been through treatment that was unsuccessful. What I am experiencing now is a concern. I have had the headaches and pain in my neck and sometimes my back for years. Now I have a recurring ear infection, or so it seems. The pain is inside the ear. It makes my ear feel full and hurt. I think it may be occurring after eating chewy foods. Is this possibly part of my TMJ? And if so, is there anything that can help it, other than just not eating chewy foods? ...Visitor from FL     (answer)

  • December 2003 I got a roaring sound in my right ear, a few days later it turned into a loud ringing. I went to my family doctor who gave me nasal spray and decongestant and said if it didn't get better he would send me to an ENT. It didn't get better the ENT said it was Tinnitus and I would have to live with it-- sent me for an MRI which was normal. I went back to my family doctor and asked to try antibiotic. It worked, but as soon as it was gone my ear noise came back. In late March I had an abcess (bump) come up on my right upper side. I went to the dentist who found two infected teeth and performed two root canals. My ear noise went away. December 2004 it returned. I went to my dentist and he couldn't find anything. He put me on antibiotic and it went away. As soon as the antibiotic was gone it came back. I went to my family doctor. He put me on a bacterial antibiotic for 3 weeks and said I needed to go to an ENT. My dentist however wanted me to go to an Endodontist first. The endodontist found infection above my teeth roots but below my sinus with a digital x-ray. He performed root canal retreats on both teeth ($1400) and found drainage in one. He thought that would take care of it and put me on Clindamycin for 10 days. It didn't. I called him back he doubled the dosage for another 10 days. The noise seemed better while on the antibiotic but it never left. I have been to a different ENT. He says it is not dental related and wants me to have another MRI. Please advise. I am frustrated, and going crazy with this noise. ...Visitor from AR     (answer)
