Do you suffer from blocked or clogged ears?
Have you ever had the uncomfortable feeling of a blocked ear such as during an increase in altitude? TMJ disorder could be the cause of your problem. Traditional treatment to straighten teeth with braces usually involved removing teeth and narrowing the upper and lower jaws. This retraction also meant that the upper and lower jaws were pulled back towards the body, which contradicts normal growth which is downward and forward. The lower jaw bone is also pulled back as a result, which can position it closer to the ear canal, and also create the "stuffiness" feeling. At Manoa Dental, Dr. Keri Do can alleviate this condition non-surgically through proven methods. Manoa Dental is always available for a consult if you suffer from this condition.
