Boris Borisov  | Elena Dimova
Abstract: Tinnitus is a phantom auditory sensation in the absence of external auditory stimuli. It was estimated that between 10% and 15% of the adult population suffers from tinnitus. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effect of tinnitus on quality of life in patients with temporomandibular dysfunction. The object of the study were 150 patients who passed through the clinical halls of the Faculty of Dental Medicine - Varna, University Medical and Dental Center and the Audiovestibular laboratory at the Faculty of Dental Medicine - Varna. More than ? of the patients surveyed indicated that they felt tinnitus from waking to falling asleep. 40.7% of the examined patients consider tinnitus to be a symptom of a serious health problem. About half of the patients surveyed (48.7%) indicated that they felt exhausted due to tinnitus. Tinnitus has a negative impact on the quality of life of patients, and the combination with temporomandibular dysfunction further worsens their psycho-emotional and physical condition.
