Is Your Ear Pain Caused by TMJ?

Cosmetic Dentist Serving Austin, Bee Cave, Lakeway and Nearby Areas of Texas


Do you struggle with chronic ear pain? It could be linked to TMJ. While not a primary symptom, ear pain is far from uncommon in people who suffer from TMJ. When this is the case, treating the underlying condition is the most effective way to reduce symptoms and help ensure lasting comfort.

If you struggle with ear pain but do not have an ear infection, please call 512-329-5967to schedule a free consultation with Austin neuromuscular dentist Dr. John Schmid.

 In addition to ear pain, there are a number of TMJ symptoms that may not immediately seem to be caused by jaw misalignment. These include:

  • Headaches
  • Facial discomfort
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Nasal pressure
  • Dizziness
  • Neck, back, and shoulder pain

These symptoms may be accompanied by more obvious ones including jaw clicking and pain, but this is not always the case. If you have struggled with any of these symptoms and have yet to find relief, Dr. Schmid can perform a neuromuscular evaluation to determine if TMJ is the cause and provide you with a personalized solution that helps produce lasting relief.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of TMJ, please contact Dr. John Schmid to schedule a neuromuscular dentistry evaluation today. Dr. Schmid serves Austin and surrounding areas of Texas.
