      Hi, I haven't posted here for awhile, but I've had Tinnitus for as long as I can remember. During a recent regular Dental Cleaning, I experienced something really strange. Well, I've actually experienced it every time I've gotten a cleaning since developing Tinnitus. You know how they spray water between your teeth, and then have you clamp down on the tube to suck it out? Well, when they do that to my back Molars, it drives my T crazy! It literally sounds like a Cell Phone ringing in my head. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this normal, or could it imply my T is teeth/jaw related? I should also mention that I have no hearing loss, and no idea what causes my T. Neither do the ENT's. That's why I'm wondering about this.

      TMJ? I've heard of it before, and I do have some other jaw related issues, so maybe I'll check with a good Dentist about this. Thx for responding, Thongjy and Chelles.
