Ringing in the ears is usually something that is not a cause of concern, especially if it comes and then goes away. This can happen from time to time.
However, when you have ringing in the ears that happens after a dental procedure or that does not go away, then speaking with an oral surgeon is the best way to go. Not only does this show that there is a problem happening, but it can also be a sign of something that went wrong during your dental procedure.

TinnitusTinnitus is a common problem that is experienced after having dental work done and then experiencing ringing ears. This is because the dental work may have traveled up the pathways to the ear canals or have opened a new pathway. This issue has to be assessed to ensure that no serious damage has been done during the work that was performed.
TMJThis is a condition of the jaw that causes pain and ear ringing to happen when the person moves the jaw bones up and down.
