Tinnitus with temporomandibular joint disorders: a specific entity of tinnitus patients?


Vielsmeier, V; Kleinjung, T; Strutz, J; Bürgers, R; Kreuzer, P M; Langguth, B (2011). Tinnitus with temporomandibular joint disorders: a specific entity of tinnitus patients? Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, 145(5):748-52.

Abstract

Classical risk factors for tinnitus (age, male gender, hearing loss) are less relevant in tinnitus patients with TMJ disorder, suggesting a causal role of TMJ pathology in the generation and maintenance of tinnitus. Based on this finding, treatment of TMJ disorder may represent a causally oriented treatment strategy for tinnitus.
