I have many problems with my mouth, like gum disease (hereditary), bad teeth, abscesses, and prognathism. Two different ENT said my hearing is 'fine', so I want to make sure the cause of T is not something that had to do with TMJ disorders. But how to proceed? Audiologist said that to see GP, GP said to see dentist, dentist is beating around the bush and said that one has to have problems for ONE full year with jaw before he refers to maxillo-facial or jaw specialist. As usual, I just distrust what doctors tell me. Is the dentist right? It seems absurd to say one has to go through hell for one year before he gets checked for problems! Thanks a lot for your advice.
