I thought I was going crazy until I read this thread. For almost 5 years I have been suffering from a fullness in my left ear, ringing, tingling, pressure, pain...it all began shortly after extensive dental work and the eventual removal of a tooth. I have had an MRI, a CT. They checked for sinus infection as the sinus sits right on top of where your molar roots are. My ear feels bad some days, worse others. It's so frustrating and anxiety producing. They've ruled out acoustic neuroma, TMJ, cholesteatoma...yet no relief! When I inflate my eustachian tube, the air doesn't rush out, more like a tire deflating. Does anyone out there know what is wrong? Sinuses, teeth extractions and ear problems are interrelated...and I can't get my life back to normal. I'm as confused as you are...maybe someone knows something out there.

It is possible that the dentist that pulled your tooth left the peridontal ligament in and it is producing a low grade infection. Do some research on jawbone cavitations and see if the symptoms correlate with what you are experiencing. These cavitations do not show up on regular xrays and MRIs and the patients are at a loss at getting a diagnosis and eventually a cure. IF you research cavitations, there are Internet sites that will direct you to a knowlegeable dentist that can help you. It could be something else to but I have heard of dental work causing the pain you are describing and there are qualified dentists that can help. Usually mainstream dentists deny this condition but it is very real. Here are some helpful web sites http://curezone.org/dental/dental_neuralgia.asp http://www.dentalwellness.net/forumhttp:// http://www.apothecure.com/DAMS.htm I would look for a holistic dentist Good luck to you

Dental schools require a minimum of 2 years of college-level pre-dental education prior to admittance. Most dental students have at least a bachelor's degree before entering dental school, although a few applicants are accepted to dental school after 2 or 3 years of college and complete their bachelor's degree while attending dental school. Dental school usually lasts 4 academic years. Some dental schools award the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). Others award an equivalent degree, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD).
