Labyrinthitis Bruxism:
Do You Know The Connection?

The habit or oral condition of Bruxism has multiple causal factors and labyrinthitis has been associated with Bruxism in certain instances.


Although labyrinthitis as a term is often used to refer to a general inner ear problem, the medical term as it is defined is more specifically used to refer to an inflammation of the inner ear. The ‘labyrinth’ is that part of the ear which is located in the inner ear section close to the base of the skull. This section of the inner ear is quite literally a maze like arrangement of interconnected channels. The labyrinth is an essential part of the ear that is responsible for sending ‘sound information’ - signals to the brain regarding many aspects of sounds that we perceive from our external environment. Any dysfunction of this labyrinth region (due to an infection, injury or an inflammation due to other reasons) can lead to several sensory problems such as vertigo, tinnitus or some involuntary eye movements and Bruxism.


Bruxism symptoms


Bruxism is an oral condition that triggers teeth grinding and (or) teeth clenching in people. While a lot of Bruxism symptoms are a matter of habit that resolves itself after a while, teeth grinding can be a potentially damaging condition if left unattended in chronic cases.


Inner ear dysfunction and its relation to Bruxism teeth grinding motions


Bruxism teeth grinding motions can affect the condition of the labyrinth in two ways.


  • In the first instance, teeth grinding actions can be triggered by the discomfort and stress associated with labyrinthitis. The symptoms and effects of labyrinth problems can in turn trigger the brain to indulge in many forms of involuntary actions. Some manifest such effects as Bruxism teeth grinding, especially during the sleep times at night
  • On the other hand, the intense Bruxism motions in chronic cases are severe enough to result in severe other mal functions such as causing damage to the inner ear regions of the ear. Such types of consequences can lead to the appearance of symptoms related to labyrinthitis


Since Bruxism is a multifactorial condition with many root causes that can generate its basic symptoms, all aspects of health need to be looked into while contemplating the right manner of treating the condition. A holistic approach to deal with Bruxism offers the maximum chances of a long term cure. It is also essential that an examination be conducted to verify the root cause / causes of Bruxism.
