Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding ear ache

teeth

I have had complications with TMJ for many years with painful neuropathy on the right side of my head as a result of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span>. Not only are you damaging your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> but also damaging the nerves that run thru the area where your jaws connect. Once that nerve becomes damaged it can be quite painful. I don't know where you live but I know here in Texas you can go to any pharmacy and purchace a teeth guard, and they are very inexpensive, that you can wear during sleep.
When speaking with my dentist yesterday she said to continue with Advil but to increase to every 4 hours for a week. She is wondering if I have started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> or compressing my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> in my sleep. Does this sound consitant with what I have described? Thanks for the help in advance!!
I started having pain in my jaw area and just in front of my right ear (feel like ear ache) about 2 weeks ago. The pain does not seem to have any pattern. There has also pain tingling pain in my teeth on the right side. Sometimes it is the top teeth and sometimes the bottom. Now I am having problems with my throat also. I feel like someone is holding tight on the right side of my throat. I have no idea what it is. It does seem to help when I hold cold water on that side of my mouth.
Do you grind or clench your teeth? That can make your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> ache ALOT. Try to become aware if you do either. Night time clenching and grinding is especially difficult to become aware of unless someone can tell you if you do it. The last thing would be to get an appt with a neurologist and be tested for trigeminal neuralgia. Hope this helps and that you are painfree soon.
it sounds possible you could be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span>. really you should see your dds. maybe your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> just are stained since it has been a year since your last cleaning.
Also, If your dentist mentions that you have some teeth-wear ( attrition), then you are most likely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span>/clenching your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> at night. Though I don't know what the reason could be for your throat closing up...
This could be any number of things. It could be sinus related. If you've had a cold or flu of some sort sometime in the last 2-3 weeks before this began bothering you then it is possible the infection got into the sinuses of your head which would explain the pain.
I,m having trouble with my nose its real dry and feels like maybe sores inside, what will help me with this, also I dont know if its a sx but my right ear hurts not like an ear ache but pain right where your jaw meets your ear.I would appreciate any help with this.
I wear a top mouth brace for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span>. I have a dull ache in that tooth to heat and cold sometimes, but the real trouble is in my jaw when i wake up it as gradually got worse over the months from a loud clicking and almost making it hard to eat. I went to an endo dentist who said root canal then to a physio she seem to think with the TMJ i should wait for it to settle. It is confussing to know who to go to...
Well when i was little my parents used to drink and fight just anout everynight, and i rember when they would i would find a hiding spot an clentch my teeth really hard untill it stoped (hours and hours) My dad would work might shifts and many nights I would fall asleep on the couch. My dad would say here could hear my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> from the other side of the house. Its weird because when he told me i didnt even know how to grind my teeth, and still dont to this day. I never had any problems.
Not sure exactly what started this whole thing off, but last July (2012) I had an intense sore throat left side only with a minor ear ache. Enough that it had me worried about the "C". Went to prompt care a few days later to be told I probably had a virus and they could see nothing in my ear or throat. They did a strep test - negative. Suggested I might try OTC allergy or even acid reflux meds. Imagine my relief. Well, I got no relief. I scheduled an appt for a physical.
also i get frequent hedaches, which causes my neck muscles to ache and also the area around my right jaw and below the ears, temples of my head, n also ear pain, but its not like inner ear ache,its a different kind of pain. i did go back to the doctor to check if heamangeoma was back, but after the xrays and doppler test(like ultrasound test), but the everything showed that i am normal. i started these problems as i joined work, and goin through alot of stress.
The pain was so sharp, it felt like someone stabbed me in the top of my head with some sharp thin tool and the pain went straight down the top of my head thru my ear and into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span>. I was on the floor holding my head for my deal life. After the pain left, 2 minutes later, the pain in my head isnt so bad but it scared me. Anyone have any information on what this could be? Please let me know!
Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym? I know a tumor or something like that would have showed on MRI. I've heard horror stories about aneurysms in carotid arteries and next to ear.
I now am loosing my hearing in my right ear. It's an awful muffled sound-and constant ache. Trying to find anything on the internet, and having no luck. Any info would be so helpful.
Also the crack was caused by misaligned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span>. it seems the underlying ache was still there but has erupted again, my jaw, in front of my right ear (or is it earache) and can you believe the teeth that have no nerves in them from the root canal. And it seems the all my teeth feel so sensitive. I have never really suffered with tooth ache of any kind and also they are puzzled because they say I have quite good teeth according to xrays....what could this be? Feel so grim just want a solution.
The neck muscles coming down from my ear are very hard and I have intense pain just below my jear/jaw. Often ear ache accompanies and in last 6 mos, severe tooth ache (top and bottom) and cheek pain. It lasts for 3-6 wks. Usually on right side but sometimes on left. It is one side or other, not both. I have been to 6 doctors-3 said there's nothing wrong, 2 said sinus infection and gave me antibiotics and the third said musculo-skeletal injury. The antibiotics helped a little, maybe 50%.
Tooth pain (even my front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> ache right now) 3. Ear stuffiness/ringing I had a cleaning/Xrays in April and they said everything looked okay. This just seems to flare every now and then. What treatment options exist for TMJ? Thank you.
Hi, My problem started last Tuesday (Today is Friday) with the most horrendous toothache I’ve ever suffered. This ache was in all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> on the right side top and bottom. I saw my dentist who said he could see no sign of infection but put me on penicillin. I explained that my lower jaw was also really sore. Over night however, I was extremely sick and on Wednesday the dentist changed my meds. On Thursday my face near my jaw really swelled but my teeth no longer hurt like they did.
Since then it seems like i have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> at night when i am sleeping, but im not sure. I am feeling extreme discomfort and pain on the side of the crown, symptoms are extreme headaches, ache around my jaw, right eye twitching ( side of the crown) tightness around tooth #4 ( even though i was told it would be temporary) , ear ache ( right side). my bite doesnt feel the same. Are these normal symptoms and do they eventually go away?
You are probably not only clenching your jaw, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> at night as well. All that is making your Temporal Mandibular Joint very sore. Your jaw hurts where it connects to your ear, right? You can try an OTC night guard, but it would be best to have your dentist make one if you can afford that. I'll leave you the link to the TMJ forum... http://www.medhelp.
I went to my allergist in January when I was very tired and had an ear ache and he prescribed a z-pack. at the time I had constant fluid in my throat - In retrospect it would seem that it was post nasal drip when I drank and gastric fluids when I ate. The ear was still bothering me with a marked hearing loss in April and he prescribed 5 days prednisone and told me to use my Rhinochort.
Have you got an MRI?
Not sure if I grind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span>, but it's a possibility, I've heard from someone in the past that they saw me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span>. I'm going to see a dentist tomorrow, but I would like to hear your opinions...
They will check muscles in the area of the TMJ, look for asymmetry or inflammation in your face, listen for joint clicking or scraping sounds, test the range of motion in your jaw, and examine your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> for evidence of jaw clenching or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span>. With the diagnosis they will determining which treatment or combination of therapies will work best for you. Take care and keep us posted.
- both my top jaws hurt to i have been given a mouth gard at night as i have been grinding my teeth in my sleep.
• Pain or pressure behind the eyes • Sinus problems • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) • Clogging or stuffiness of the ears, or subjective hearing loss • Pain and/or sore jaw muscles • Stiffness or soreness in the neck, shoulders and back • Vertigo (dizziness) • grinding and clenching of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> • Sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> • Clicking or popping jaw joints Tired Bite The muscles, which control your jaw and hold, your head upright is very complex.
The pain comes from the wisdom area, either sharp going to ear or dull ache. My tooth is in upright position slight bent towards back, the top part but not a lot. Its right next to my molar with a very slight gap between. My wish would be just to get the thing out and done with. But now hear these stories about the numbness etc, when I had others out years ago was fine. But I was younger then. If it remains there wont it cause my other teeth to shift? or problems with them?
They are usually very good about finding out if you have a sleep disorder--especially apnea. The problems breathing, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span>, the jerking (because your body is reacting to lack of oxygen from the apnea), the tired unrested feeling---they are classic sleep apnea symptons. If you doctor can't figure the out, get a new doctor. While I dont have sleep apnea, I have problems sleeping--falling asleep, staying asleep. On average I get 3-4 hours sleep though I try for 8 hrs min.
thanks for the replies, I'm still having pain on the side of my face, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>teeth</span> are sore, ear is tender, when I move my jaw it makes a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grinding</span> type noise at times, on both sides. But it always has done that?? when I saw the dentist last week, I wonder why he didn't check for TMJ...you would think he would go there before telling me to take some teeth out...maybe time to find a new dentist and get checked out. I'm starting the new Rx the Neuro said to take.. will find out if it helps.
