Question They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to me

Hey friends!!!!

I saw my dentist on Friday ready to say goodbye as i'm fed up with my earaches but she finally realised that i'm the most complex person shes dealt with ever and she did my regular monthly molds, which includes her sticking this rod thing in my ears and making me bite on this soft plaster thing ( i cant stand it but have to do it) and was like oh gosh according to this you're right ear would hurt because its unaligned again!!!

She says i'm so complex as my jaw doesn't stabilize ever.. it keeps going from its alignment thats why i get all good then bad! Although i was so sad that i'm complex and sad as i'm so near the end of getting better i was relieved it wasnt in my head and evidence shows why my ears hurt!!

its become a muscular issue where my jaws wont stabilize, she said any other persons jaw doesn't move thus no earaches however for some reason mine does and says i must have some serious emotional issues which annoyed me to death!

she didn't want to make a stabilization splint and says its a waste of money as in a month she would have to make another and doesn't want me moving a step back!! but i know why my ears ache now... !!! I'm sad as i'm complex and i dont know why my jaws always get out of alignment which forces the muscles in my right hand side to stretch and cause earaches.. as apart from the earaches i'm 100% thats why this drives me so mental.

Her suggestion is i take home a tens unit and use it everyday .. does anyone agree with this?? she says hopefully my jaw will learn to stabilize permanently and then we can go back to adjusting my double splints and straightening my teeth etc. so i finally have the perfect bite and no spasms etc. She doesn't know how to stop the alignment issues which i have and says im complex and unlucky and i must do something do muck it up!!!

I'm feeling happy as i am so close to the end i feel but sad because i dont know if my jaw will ever stabilize. Cannot handle this earpain no more.. what do you guys all think i should do?? Any ideas on how to stabilize my jaws!!??

I'm scared in case using tens on myself everyday at home will harm me in future times.. like muscle damage..

Love you all , please write to me , so badly need a hug!

Interesting, my ears killl me too and my jaw doesn't stay in alignment.

When you get tensed where does she put the patches, right on your joint? does she tens you every time you see her.

also she has tens units for you to bring home- that nice.

She seems like she wants to work with you so I would stick with her for now, its hard starting with someone new isn't it.

Are you stll seeing the chiro, did she suggest you should.

Re: They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to

I am experiencing the same thing right now with a dentist! After 7 months he stated nothing was wrong with the crowns he put on my two teeth, the were both too high. I went to an expert Prsthodonist that found the problem. It is horrible what these dentist can do to peoples health. The sad part is you can't get you money back unless you file a lawsuite. They say the BBB will help you, but I heard that doesnt work either. I am still working on my case. I notified the dental board in my state, make sure you notify and put a complaint into your dental board also.

chelsea, what kind of problems were you having with the crowns too high?
Are you better now. Nope, just about impossible to get a refund from dentist,
and its hard to know which dentist to trust anymore, they all say different things.

Exclamation Re: They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to

Hey there friends,

Thanks for you're replies!

LTC thank you so much for you're reply! yeah she puts the patches right on my joint. No she hardly ever tens me unless we are going to align the jaw completely all over again.. but i will fill you in with the efficiency of how it works on me!!! i have only had the tens around 4 times in my life.. it sometimes is painful as its so strong but im worried about too much use and the damage??? Like i dont want us to use it religiously and then find out that it causes cancer etc. in years to come and then it will be too late. But thats the risk i must take hey! Yeah she is letting me take it home as i think she feels for me as i trust her so much shes so keen on helping me ALOT!

If it does fix me .. theres a solution for both of us.. do you have any ideas how we can stay in alignment.. apparently commonly people never have the alignment issues and i'm complex as i should be 100% by now but just plain unlucky.. if the Lords teaching me a lesson i've certainly learnt one through this! Im not seeing my chiro and i dont think she would dare suggest it considering he hardly helped me with the earache issue. Chiro isn't for me and if i require chiro forever like she said to help me well she knows i'm off to see someone else. i Dont like the chiro as i have no back problems and i dont trust how they click my body parts! I find they just offer a quick fix and it isn't worth it for me as it didn't help me one bit.

Chelsea im so so sorry , argh i find that so annoying and maddening
But on the bright side at least they found you're real root of the problem hey sweets! But no you so have a right to complain..!!!! I cant really file for a law suit as for such at the moment my dentist hasn't really ruined everything , well i have no evidence of that, but you do and i think you should fight you're case. However legal fees are crazy prices so just make sure you dont get more ripped off by the lawyer them self.

Thanks again for all you're replies.. hope to hear more soon Love you all!!!

Re: They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to

I'm new to this site so I was confused as how to respond.

I went to a prosthodontist they specialize in this kind of thing. He adjusted the crowns and I feel fine, except they are still a little too high.

I have to go back and have them adjusted again. But it was a big difference. All the time for 7 months this crown or crowns caused this pain and he (the dentist) Bertolini didn't know what was causing my pain.

This is horrible. I have called 4 attorneys and none of them will take the case even over the dentists office arguing with me that nothing was wrong and Bertolini does good work. Well he sure doesn't know how to do occlusal adjustments on crowns I can tell you that. He is out of North Canton.

I guess If no attorney will take my case, I am going to write the Attorney General in my state and then government officials to try to change the law the way dentist can get away with this improper treatment to patients who come to them for help and end up in more pain, and then want to walk away from it.

I am fine now except need a little more adjustment. The tingling is going away or numbness. My jaw, neck, is still a little tight and my chin a little sore. But I am going to give it a couple more days.

If it doesn't quit irritating my gums I am going to have the crown removed. I think from the 7 months of not being adjusted right from the first dentist has caused more problems underneath the crown.

Will let you know what happens soon. I have more attorneys to call because when I write a letter to my attorney general they are going to know how hard it is to get your money back and claim negligence on a dentist. Through all suffering and pain you deserve something.

I am fed up. I have lost weight also over all this. I am from Massillon, Ohio Stark County by the way. It's knowing that other people experience the same situations with dentist and the dental board does nothing! It is crazy. Chat with you guys soon.

Yes I am better now except the crown he put on #19 is down to deep and irritating my gums still. When the GD put the crowns on, they were too high and I kept chewing and when I would chew it felt like the crown was moving.

It made my bite off somehow. They were not adjusted properly when he put the crowns on, they were to high and he stated for 7 months they were fine.


I went to a specialist Prosthodontist. They have 4 more years of schooling than original GDs. I'm not saying all GDs are bad, but 1 out of 500 might be good for specialty things.

I have to have both of my crowns replaced becuse they are too high. I had two root canals dones the other day. Number 19 was the worst. It bled when he was doing the root canal it was pretty bad.

I never knew that crowns being high and not adjusted right could cause all there problems.
It is sad, very sad what a person has to go through and have to get attorney to get your money back. I heard that insurance companies might try to fight also for things like this. ?

I don't think I will ever go to a GD for anything again except for a cleaning.

Re: They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to

I read about bench 47 it is horrible, what lawyers and dentist can do. I read this guys website how he had to fight about a drill bit in his jaw. It is maddening to know such things can happen to people and the medical field doesn't give a damn about it. But maybe one day someone will. I am fed up with politics in the medical field I never knew such things existed.

Did you know that any doctor or dentist can seriously injure you and there is nothing you can do about it? The proof of this is Rule 47 of Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure, read it here: [url]http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/orcpors.htm[/url] It says that the injured person must have a Lawyer hire another doctor to testify against the doctor that injured you, or you loose without ever going to court. (Regardless of the tons of evidence you may have and You cannot hire that witness) This is in violation of federal equal protection laws & the Constitution. Doctors & Dentists belong to societies that immunize one another by agreeing not to testify against each other.

I have to recourse either with an attorney I'm sure. The only recourse is my State Dental Board in OHIO. I have to get the two crowns replaced wich are going to cost me 3488.00 after already paying 2560 to have them done the first time. I guess I'll notify the Better Business Bureau also.
chat later

Re: They found out my problem..!! What do you guys think i should do? Please write to

I have been doing great! I have had very little pain for the past month or two. I still have crunching and poping and soreness all over, but less pain and headaches! I ate a hamburger yesterday Sure, I broke it apart, but I was able to chew it. I feel like a different person! I was able to throw a party for my birthday last night. Man, that felt really good. For the longest time, I couldn't do anything with my friends because I just wanted to go to sleep as soon as I could. Oh, today is my birthday! I'm 24 now.

I'm lucky I live in the south, the financial crisis hasn't hit here as hard, except for the big corporations that have a lot of companies in the north.

I don't know if I've told you, but I have been taking that Natural TMJ relief by Jeffrey Wheaton. It helps me get a really good sleep without any grogginess in the morning, but I can't say for sure it is the cause of my jaw feeling better. I haven't been brave enough to take it during the day for fear of me falling asleep doing something! It is a mix of herbs, vitamins and minerals.

Are your ears getting any better??
