Objective To evaluate the presence of tinnitus and tinnitus-related hearing loss in individuals with temporomandibular joint disorders. Methods In the study, 288 patients with temporomandibular joint complaints and 33 patients with both temporomandibular and tinnitus complaints were evaluated. The Tinnitus Handicap Inventory was used in the evaluation of tinnitus. Pure tone audiometry test was used to evaluate the presence and degree of hearing loss. The Student'st-test and Independent Samplet-test were applied to compare between groups. Results The incidence of tinnitus was found to be 11.46% among patients with temporomandibular disorders. Tinnitus and tinnitus severity levels were found to have significant differences in patients with temporomandibular disorders. No significant relationships were found between right and left ear pure tone audiometry test results in patients. Conclusion There is a relationship between aural symptoms, tinnitus, and temporomandibular disorders. Patients with temporomandibular disorders should be evaluated for otological symptoms.
