      Sometimes I wonder if people with some kind of teeth misalignment can worsen tinnitus. I heard that sucking your thumb or wearing a pacifier as a child can cause an overbite. You may select up to three. Here are some pictures of of these types of teeth to better explain:

      Midline shift (notice the bottom center tooth spacing does not line up with the top center tooth spacing):

      @Markku
      The poll is not complete cause it misses the option to answer "healthy " Because of that only people with some sort of teeth alignment problem can answer, so we cannot have a correct statistic, to be able to draw some kind of conclusion.

      I have the same suspicion.

      Is there any way I can fix the poll myself? If anyone has healthy please comment below. I am sorry I messed up the poll.

      Had an accident when I was a kid which busted my mouth up pretty good. Knocked out several pre teeth.
      Had to wear braces in high school.
      I can move my jaw into several positions that cause a specific T sound in my ears.

      Did your T start around the time that happened?

      No, this accident happened many years ago - maybe 1971 or 72. I was a wee lad. Tinnitus kicked in on April 17, 2012.

      That said, I have been able to move my jaw around and cause a hissing sound in my ears as long as I can remember.
      I had always assumed everyone could as well. Didn't seem out of the norm.

      Yeah, I know what you mean. After I got tinnitus I noticed when I clinched my jaw it would affect the T. I don't remember if it did before. I asked my mom who has tinnitus if clenching her jaw affected her T and she said no.

      For me it's an additional sound. It's a bit louder than my T on a typical day so the effect that its making the existing sounds louder is there. Sometimes the ability to do this is less or more pronounced. Probably to do with blood pressure or barometric pressure..

      What do you think Dana? You think there is a connection here? It's hard to know because we don't have a poll for the non tinnitus people to compare this to.
