I am a TMJ surgical patient with 30 years of experience navigating the maze of obstacles and roadblocks on the obstacle course of medical and dental care that prevent patients from reaching the end of the road. This blog is intended to help other patients reach a finish line without the same number of speed bumps, unnecessary fines, and fender benders, so that they can get the relied and solutions with the least amount of damage to their body. The metaphor of cars and automobiles seems fitting because just like a car, once you operate on a person, they will never be like new again, and once a car is on an accident they will never drive the same, the paint job will never be perfect, and the body will always have damage. even through insurance covers some of the work from the initial accident, the car will need more work don the road from the initial accident and these costs aren’t covered by any insurance carrier. The car still works after the accident, but its tempermental and its overheats and gets tired, it has certain little glitches.
