    TMJ Solutions for Meniere’s Disease

    At the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of the Greater Toronto Area, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for patients suffering from TMJ disorders and related conditions, including Meniere’s Disease. Understanding the connection between these conditions is crucial for effective treatment and improving your quality of life.

    What is Meniere’s Disease?

    Meniere’s Disease is a disorder of the inner ear that leads to episodes of vertigo (a spinning sensation), hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the ear. This condition can significantly impact your daily activities and overall well-being. The exact cause of Meniere’s Disease is not fully understood, but it is believed to result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors, including abnormal fluid in the inner ear.

    How Meniere’s Disease Relates to TMJ

    The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jawbone to your skull and plays a vital role in chewing, speaking, and overall jaw movement. TMJ disorders can lead to a range of symptoms, including jaw pain, headaches, and ear-related issues. There is a significant connection between TMJ disorders and Meniere’s Disease. Dysfunction in the TMJ can influence the Eustachian tube, which helps regulate ear pressure, potentially exacerbating symptoms of Meniere’s Disease.

    Symptoms of TMJ-related Ear Pain:

    Symptoms may include:

    • Vertigo: Sudden episodes of dizziness or a spinning sensation.
    • Hearing Loss: Fluctuating hearing loss, particularly in one ear.
    • Tinnitus: Ringing, buzzing, or roaring sounds in the ear.
    • Ear Fullness: A feeling of pressure or fullness in the affected ear.

    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 🙂
