Research has identified work-related stress and its potential mental health-related sequelaes, i.e., depression and burnout, as risk factors for tinnitus.

The mutebutton tinnitus treatment system, which was developed to address significant patient and clinical needs, reportedly combines synchronous audio and lingual (tongue) stimulation to promote patient neuroplasticity. Each of these structures has been shown to send excitatory projections to the cochlear nucleus. All the participants received individual dental functional therapy (oral splints, physiotherapy). The effects of functional therapy on TMD and tinnitus symptoms were examined 3 to 5 months after the initiation of dental functional therapy.

Means (standard deviations) were calculated, and 1-way ANOVA was used to investigate statistical differences (α=.05). Translabyrinthine surgical removal of VS in these patients led to better THI results, with the younger patients having better outcomes. RESULTS: Prevalence of tinnitus was found to be 8 times higher in participants with TMD (30 of 82 [36.6%]) than in participants without TMD (38 of 869 [4.4%]). All the participants with unilateral TMD and unilateral tinnitus showed these conditions on the same side. Stomatognathic therapy improved tinnitus symptoms in 11 of 25 participants (44%). CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study and the prospective clinical trial showed a significant correlation between tinnitus and TMD. The observed treatment outcome suggests that dental functional therapy may have a positive effect on TMD-related tinnitus.
