What is Tinnitus?

Sometimes the sounds you hear interfere with hearing the actual sounds around you.


The medical term for the ringing and buzzing in your years is tinnitus. People who suffer from this condition often hear roaring, buzzing, whistling, or hissing sounds. Tinnitus can be a frustrating symptom when there is no external sound source, but it is most often due to an undiagnosed underlying cause. According to the American Tinnitus, nearly 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus.

How Is TMJ Connected To Tinnitus?

There are two types of Tinnitus—subjective and objective.


The most common type of tinnitus is subjective—meaning you are the only one that experiences the noise. Objective tinnitus is more rare and is indicative when someone else can hear a pulsing or rhythmic pulsing sound emanating from your ears. Typically the sound is in sync with your heartbeat, and it may also be caused by blood flow issues, brain abnormalities, or brain tumors.

TMJ-related Tinnitus Symptoms

How your brain processes sounds is important to understand.


As sound travels through your ear, inner hair cells transform the sound waves into electrical signals, which then travel to your brain’s auditory cortex through the auditory nerve. However, if those nerve cells are damaged, your brain creates an illusion or distortion of sound. As a result, tinnitus can occur anywhere within the auditory pathway—the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. The primary symptoms include:

  • Buzzing
  • Chirping
  • Clicking
  • Humming
  • Ringing
  • Screeching
  • Whistling

The range and pitch of the noises affect one or both of the ears and are most noticeable at night. However, these noises can occur at any time. Other symptoms include an imbalance of ear pressure or ear congestion.

TMJ-Related Tinnitus Solutions

Learn more about how Dr. Siman can help alleviate the ringing in your ears.


Tinnitus can happen to anyone; however, it is more typical in older men, people who have been exposed to loud noises throughout their lives, people with cardiovascular issues. Some medications may also cause tinnitus. When you work with Dr. Siman, he is dedicated to uncovering the root causes of your symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no direct solution to cure tinnitus. However, the solution is to reduce the risk of your tinnitus increasing, such as wearing a preventative hearing device (earplugs), especially if you work around loud noises (military personnel, construction workers, musicians, or pilots). Most medical professionals, including ENTs and neurologists, have told their patients that there is no cure for tinnitus.

Patients are desperately in search of solutions to find relief to this debilitating condition. What most of these professionals are not aware of is that scientific research has shown that there is a direct correlation between tinnitus and temporomandibular disorders. Numerous scientific research articles have been published in scientific and medical journals. At last, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Could your tinnitus be related to a TMJ condition? Dr. Siman can help uncover if the root cause of your tinnitus is the result of TMJ or Sleep Apnea and then customize a holistic treatment to address your specific issues. Our Sherman Oaks location offers the following:

Consultation and Evaluation

Dr. Siman provides non-surgical & painless proprietary, holistic treatments. His approach to treating TMJ-related symptoms distinguishes him from other medical professionals such as ENT’s, orthodontists, & neurologists. Dr. Siman’s clinical examination includes a diagnosis of your Tinnitus-related symptoms, including migraines, headaches, ringing in the ears, neck and shoulder pains, snoring, sleep apnea, and more.

In-House CT Scan

Dr. Siman uses a CT-Scan to evaluate if TMJ is impacting your tinnitus and causing other pain or inflammation within your muscles. His thorough examination of your volumetric CT scan will determine if there is a close proximity of your temporomandibular joint to the structures of your ear since the temporomandibular joint is directly located in front of your ear. A simple test to locate the head of your TMJ is to place your index finger in your ear and move your jaw. By doing this, you can feel the proximity of the head of your TMJ to your ear canal. Research has shown that in a large percentage of cases, by reducing the pressure of the joint from the ear canal, tinnitus is improved, reduced, and in some cases, eliminated.

Bite and Jaw Alignment

Dr. Siman assesses the position of your jaw to determine if your jaw is misaligned. Dr. Siman’s experience has shown a strong correlation between your jaw and your ear. By resetting the alignment of your jaw, he can position it where your muscles are tension-free, reducing the pressure on the ear, thereby relieving ringing in your ears in TMJ-related tinnitus.

Custom-fit Orthotic Device

Once a comfortable position for the jaw is established, Dr. Siman can customize an orthotic appliance for you. Dr. Siman is dedicated to giving his patients the best opportunity at reducing their tinnitus by modifying an existing FDA-approved dental appliance—giving his patients a practical and helpful way to improve their jaw position, alleviate snoring, and minimize chronic TMJ-related tinnitus in many cases.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Dr. Siman uses physio-therapeutic equipment technology to relax tense jaw muscles, control tongue movement, and improve the position of the jaw. The transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) device sends electrical impulses to the muscles, decreasing the amount of tension in the muscle. This treatment is very effective and is a great adjunct to Dr. Siman’s holistic TMJ treatments.

How TMJ Affects Tinnitus

Many research studies correlate tinnitus and TMJ. The TMJ Expert can help.


The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located in front of your ear canal, but if your jaw is misaligned, it causes the joint to push against your auditory structures and ear canal—causing your ears to ring. Studies show that tinnitus is eight times more likely to happen in people with TMJ disorder than without—showing a direct correlation. If you have been told by other doctors such as ENTs and neurologists that there is no solution for TMJ, you may consider thinking outside the box to discover if your tinnitus is TMJ related and seek appropriate treatment.
