Hi, my husband has posted on this forum for me regarding my chronic T and severe H.  I had colon surgery two months ago, and I did wear foam earplugs for the surgery only. I Did not have a setback. Your responses were much appreciated.  

  I really need some dental work that does not need to be put off any longer. I have had the T and hearing condition for 2 1/2 years, from an enclosed MRI with double hearing protection.   I have seen improvement with the T and Hyper, but still have a ways to go.  I am considering laser procedure.  There is one small cavity on the front tooth, and two small cavities between teeth.  My dentist says this can be done with the laser. Hubby measured the laser and it spikes up to 85 decibels. There is no way my head can take a drill!  We haven't decided how the filing and polishing will be done.  I plan to wear foam  earplugs and possibly headphones, the type you wear for mowing.

Question:  Has anyone on this forum been presented with this same problem, if so how did you handle it,  and did you have any side effects, or setback??   If so, what happened??

Thank you for taking the time to read my long post.

The problem you will find with dentistry comes from bone conduction of sound.  You could try muffs over plugs but you can't much muffle bone-conducted sound.

I heard this is mainly with drilling procedure.  With laser it's reduced.  Is there anyone here that has had dental filling with severe hyper and T??  Did it exaserbate both conditions, if so for how long??

I really hate to do anything that may give me a setback.  I have gone through hell with these problems, and the T is settling down.  I can finally travel by car on the secondary road at 55 MPH without my head having a high pitch ring too.  I can't let my teeth rot either.  I have always taken care of my oral hygiene.

Hi, I have had dental work done with drilling using ear plugs and muffs. They are not too effective as the sound is internal not external, However I survived without lasting affects, that is the T and H didn't get worse. I don't have access to laser but am sure it would be better than normal drilling.
I just grin and bear it and so far so good....... Donna

After terrible years of servere hyperacusis, i got a lot better in the last year. I realy quit earplugs up to 90 %. Most of my activities, like shopping and restaurants I did with my new bose qc 25 noise cancelling headphones. I had to spent a week in Berlin for a Job education Seminar. everything went fine, the train, the stations, the city and beer gardens were a pleasure after all that time i had to live without such things and i was not able to do something like that for years.....but 2 weeks ago I had to do some dental work. I thought the best way it would be to wear only the headphones, because  it will not give the sound over the bones, like when you use real earplugs.
But it did not work . I got a huge setback, which worsen day by day.
You see, everything we try in protection.is try and error, you can not be sure that things are like they should be. Secure does not exist. Next time i wold try annother way. But Dental work is the most hellish thing that we have to go through.
But one thing interrests me. Could it be that dental work in full narcotic situation is better, because our brain doer not remember what realy happend.
Who has experiences with that? Greetings from germany Achim

Hi Kathy,

On August 6th of this year I had to undergo gum surgery. They also cleaned my teeth and performed some other work while in there, totalling 2 hours. I chose to go under anaesthesia and I wore earplugs and ear muffs as well. I had no ear pain or worsened symptoms after.

I hope you're able to find a solution!

All the best,

Faith
