After tooth extraction, pressure on the ear

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: melsonidell  (3 years ago)
Hello,

I have another question. Last Wednesday, the last molar on the left side of the upper jaw was pulled and since yesterday, I feel an intermittent pressure on the ear, i.e. on the side where the tooth was pulled. The pressure feels as if one is driving into the mountains with a car.

Is there any correlation between these things? Is it a reason to see the dentist once more?

Heartfelt thanks in advance for your efforts...

Kind Regards, Melsonidell

Dear Melsonidell!

It’s possible that a modification of the bone in the palate / tuber area led to a modified muscle tone of the tuba auditiva and that thus the middle ear is not optimally aerated for a brief time (the dull feeling in the ear). The best thing to do is to see an ENT specialist and verify that it is not an effusion / conductive hearing loss.

Thank you very much for your answer.

The pressure feeling has disappeared by now, should I have it checked by a physician anyway?

Dear Melsonidell!

I don’t think that’s necessary – if you should experience new discomfort, then yes. As it is, I would check it off as a “side effect” of the tooth extraction.
