Randomized Controlled Trial of a Novel Device for Tinnitus Sound Therapy During Sleep.
Conclusions: This study offers some support for greater average improvement in reactions to tinnitus with TM or NS devices compared to the BSG device. The TM group, compared to the BSG and NS groups, showed a greater reduction in ratings of tinnitus loudness on the NRS on average. Supplemental Material: https://doi.org/10.23641/asha.5545759.

(Reuters Health) - A sound-emitting device worn in the ear during sleep may train the brain to ignore an annoying chronic ringing in the ears, a new study suggests.
Publication date: Available online 26 December 2017 Source:European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases Author(s): A. Londero, P. Bonfils, J.P. Lefaucheur Subjective tinnitus is a symptom in many ENT pathologies, for which there is no curative treatment. It may be poorly tolerated by some patients, who develop attention or sleep disorder or even major anxiety and depression, severely impairing quality of life. Pathophysiological models of the genesis and maintenance of tinnitus symptomatology highlight maladaptive cerebral plasticity induced by peripheral hearing loss. Although not fully elucidated, thes...

Introduction: The occlusion of the teeth is frequently overlooked in providing correct dental treatment. Symptoms of occlusal disease are often hidden from the practitioner when he or she are not properly trained. If not treated this could lead to intensifying of the pathological process and affect the neighboring anatomical structures. Such structures are the middle ear and the ear canal.
Introduction: Tinnitus is a common complaint in otologic clinics. The sensation of ringing, roaring, pulsatile or clicking sounds emanating from the ears without an external noise source is often described by tinnitus patients. Tinnitus is commonly a result of dysfunction of the auditory system anywhere along the pathway. It isn't a condition itself but a symptom of an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing deterioration, ear disorders, or problems with a central nervous origin, such as acoustic neuroma.
