Ringing In The Ears And Tooth Filling?
.. Currently I experience ringing in the left ear as if hearing a flat tire .. And it has been going on for 2 months .. 3 months before I had to fill my left upper molar teeth to the dentist, before patching I often clean it with cotton. so that food does not enter and the hole is very deep … Now If I bite (join the lower and upper teeth) on the filled molar, then my left ear feels ringing .. I want to ask if there is a ringing ear connection I experienced these tooth fillings … Please answer and explain … Thank you
Hello Hanafi, Thank you for the question.
Ringing ears is known as tinnitus in medical language. Apart from ringing in the ears, the sufferer can also hear hissing or whistling sounds. Tinnitus can be caused by various health conditions but it is also not uncommon for the cause to be unknown. The following are some of the causes of tinnitus:
damage to the inner ear decreases the quality of hearing due to increasing age accumulation of earwax infection in the middle ear fluid buildup in the ear Meniere's disease rupture of the eardrums side effects of drugs and other Possible complaints are not related to the filling of your teeth. This complaint can arise when you close your mouth because the nasal cavity and throat (nasopharynx) are connected to the ear through an Eustachian tube / tube. There are certain movements that can open these tubes (called the Valsalva maneuver) and you can hear them in your ears. Maybe this is what causes the sound in your ears when you close your mouth.
The best step you can take right now is to consult an ENT specialist because your complaint has been going on for 2 months. The doctor will ask further about this complaint and perform an examination of your ear before determining the next treatment.
Please keep your ears clean and dry. Hidnari inserts any object into the ear.
Hope this information is helpful.
