Hearing loss can occur due to age, the underlying disease or post-trauma that occurs in the head. In your case, even though the trauma occurred in the right jaw, you feel a decrease in the quality of hearing in the left ear after it happened. Some possibilities are interrelated, including a decrease in post-traumatic hearing function that can damage the eardrum or trigger damage in the middle ear, or other causes that are not necessarily due to trauma.
Some causes of hearing loss due to trauma include:
Effect of age
Exposure to noise that is too loud for a long time
Obstruction by a foreign object in the ear
Effects of drugs
Other illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.
Hearing loss can be temporary or permanent depending on physical findings on direct examination. In addition, hearing loss is divided into sensorineural deafness, namely disruption of nerve fibers in the ear and conductive deafness due to damage to the auditory media in the middle ear so that sound waves cannot enter perfectly. You should consult with an ENT specialist to assess the condition of the inner ear. Treatment is given based on the findings of the causes obtained.
To reduce complaints and prevent disease severity, we recommend:
Avoid touching the ears
Avoid using drugs before checking by a doctor
Use ear protection from noise so as not to aggravate the injury suffered
Stop using drugs that are at risk of causing hearing loss
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
