I have had TMJ since I was a child. Bad earaches as a young child and jaw locking/popping at 12 years old. I have had braces 4 times and surgery in 2005 at 40 years old.
As I age, I will have problems. Has anyone found any insurance that pays for TMJ? I have a dr. wanting to give me injections in my jaw for the pain, but insurance won't pay for it. I am thinking of sueing, to try to get new insurance laws to help this problem.
The Tempromandibular Joint is a joint, just like the Hip Joint or the Knee Joint. Why won't they pay for the treatment of TMJ?
