Hearing  and Clenching

Is there a connection with sleep clenching and reduced hearing? There is no question among qualified occlusal therapists that there is. I have questions hundreds of patients about less hearing in the problem joint area. Nearly all report less hearing. There are several possibilities for this. One is the possibility that the tympanic membrane is attached to the inter ear apparatus. The second is the possibility that the tympanic foramen may not be sealed. Dr. Mahan explain this is the following videos. Play the available movies.
