TMJ Ear Pain

    For Patients

    Understanding TMJ-Related Ear Pain

    At TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the Greater Toronto Area, we understand the discomfort and frustration that comes with ear pain, especially when it’s related to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Our specialized team is here to provide comprehensive care and relief for individuals experiencing TMJ-related ear pain.

    What is TMJ-related Ear Pain?

    If you’re experiencing discomfort in your ears, it could be linked to issues with your jaw joint.  TMJ-related ear pain occurs when the temporomandibular joint, which connects your jawbone to your skull, experiences dysfunction. This dysfunction can lead to various symptoms, including ear pain, because the TMJ is situated close to the ears and shares certain nerves.

    Symptoms of TMJ-related Ear Pain:

    Symptoms may include:

    • Earache: Persistent or intermittent pain in one or both ears.
    • Ear pressure: Feeling of fullness or pressure in the ears.
    • Tinnitus: Ringing, buzzing, or other noises in the ears.
    • Vertigo: Dizziness or a sensation of spinning.
    • Headaches: Chronic headaches, often radiating from the temples or behind the eyes.

    Dr. Goodfellow helped me immensely with all of my TMJ and sleep problems. He always explained every part of my treatment in detail so we were always at the same level of understanding. His staff was extremely kind and always accommodating of my needs. One of the best clinics and most pleasant experiences I have had when getting a medical treatment!

    If you have TMJ issues and headaches, go to Dr Goodfellow! I have suffered from migraines, jaw locking and clicking, aches, etc; after my treatment with Dr Goodfellow and his team, my jaw doesn’t lock and click anymore and I can open my mouth wide again with no pain! My headaches have decreased too. very happy, thank you 🙂
