How are TMJ and Ear Pain related?

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is found near the auditory canal of the ear. When the TMJ is inflamed, it can lead to pain and ringing in the ear.

TMJ pain can be relieved by jaw exercises, heat/cold compresses and soft diet. Mouth appliances like nightguards also help to relieve TMJ pain.
