It may sound improbable, but it’s a reality – nearly 50% of individuals experiencing ear pain find its root cause in jaw and teeth issues. Scientifically, jaw joint and bite problems have been identified as contributors to tinnitus, the persistent ringing or humming noise that affects 10% of the population. Beyond disrupting hearing, tinnitus often leads to insomnia, anxiety, and depression.

Three key theories shed light on the connection between jaw joint problems and tinnitus. Firstly, proximity of chewing muscles to those influencing the middle ear may impact hearing and contribute to tinnitus. Secondly, ligaments connecting the jaw to hearing bones in the middle ear establish a direct link. Thirdly, the nerve supply from the jaw joint has proven connections with brain regions associated with hearing and sound interpretation.

Mentioned below are some other conditions wherein the tooth and ear issues impact each other.

Gum Infections can extend beyond the oral cavity, affecting the head. Research suggests that gum disease correlates with increased risks of diabetes and heart disease, similarly impacting the ears by causing infections.

Trigeminal Nerve Pain – Trigeminal neuralgia, causing severe facial pain along the fifth cranial nerve, may also reach the ears. The branches of this nerve connect the teeth, jaw, and ears, making it a potential source of interconnected pain.

Sinus Infections, originating from the maxillary sinus beneath the cheekbones, can affect the ears through pressure on the trigeminal nerve branches, causing pain that extends to the ears.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD) – Abnormal functioning of the jaw joints, characteristic of TMJ or TMD disorder, can manifest as ear-related pain due to their proximity to the
ear canal.

Ear Infections may cause toothache due to a shared nerve line between the teeth and ears. Patients might misattribute ear infection pain to dental issues, emphasizing the intricate connection.

LMNT cure for infection and inflammation

Dr. Lajpatrai Mehra’s profound understanding of human physiology helped him devise different sets of treatments for infection and inflammation. He believed that prolonged infection is the cause of inflammation in the body. Hence to treat infections, he devised techniques to stimulate T Lymphocytes and B lymphocytes. For controlling inflammation he stimulated the release of corticosteroids from adrenal cortex, and also introduced techniques for regulating prostaglandins in the body.
By controlling infection and inflammation LMNT has succeeded in helping resolve painful gum issues. Also, the treatment has been successful in strengthening gums to help the condition of shaking teeth.


The surprising connection between teeth, ears, and various health conditions underscores the importance of a holistic approach to healthcare. Understanding these interrelations allows for more targeted treatments, and LMNT, with its unique methodology, continues to provide valuable solutions for infection and inflammation, improving overall dental and ear health.
