Need A Great Tmj Dentist In Kentucky Or Surrounding States!
My name is Tina. I have had tmj for 2 years now. The first year was hell. I have been doing great for past year until 2 weeks ago when I over exerted myself and now pain is back. I have another post on here under tina1966 if you would like to read it. My story is a long one. I really need to know the name of a great tmj dentist in Kentucky or surrounding states. The tmj dentist that treated me won't see me now because I went and got a second opinion 1 year ago after he told me I needed $20,000 worth of crowns put on to help my tmj get better and under control. By the way, UK told me I did not need all that crown work done. I am hoping this pain will subside and its just a setback, however, I went seeking help from a dentist here who suggested a NTI would do the trick..well..it did not...I just need to know if I really do need crowns or braces to fix this...or if I should just leave well enough alone...I do have several missing back teeth and could use a bridge. But otherwise have great gums, etc. Any help is greatly appreciated. I just cant believe my dentist would not see me...can he get away with this? Also, by tmj specialist I mean someone who has the special equipment they can hook you up to to see if your jaw is unbalanced...its very state of the art.
THanks so much. Tina
