Customer Question
How can I find...

How can I find an oral Maxillofacial surgeon specializing in TMJ prosthesis post surgery complications, for repair and reduction of increasing symptoms, as narrowing of airway, pain and moving teeth. I have Medicare. Who would have that information?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Pain is intermittent, sometimes when chewing, sometimes not. The five surgeries in bilateral prosthesis placement was about five years ago, with two years post orthodontics. The pain has gradually become worse with facial muscle tension, and some swelling at rt prosthesis site.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I have gone to a local oral maxillofacial surgeon who does not know what to do. Perhaps someone who specializes in post TMJ surgery complications, but I do not know how to find that.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
