@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

I was not told by the DCVAMC that I was having a Full Dental C and P exam in Jan.12. I told that I was to have a TMJ C and P exam. I received a copy of the Exam and wrote to the Baltimore VARO that the Dental provider didn't asked me any questions why I had so many silver fillings and missing teeth. I Inform the VARO that the Base Mess Hall serve me boneless steak that had bones in the meat. I crack all the teeth in my mouth and receive treatment at the Base Dental Clinic.. This was a important issue that would have cause my rating to be rated 0%.....Veterans always request a copy of the C & P exam after the exam from the Medical Record Department. Read the report. If the Doctor missed something. Write the VARO to correct your exam if need to......Good Luck to all my Disable Veterans Friends. I wonder what my rating will be now?

Hi Maurice,
I am service connected for TMJ that was caused by botched oral surgery. The TMJ C&P exam is actually a Dental C&P exam. I have included links to the C&P exam worksheet and rating criteria for dental. Compare it against your exam notes to see if everything matches up.

Dental C&P Exam Worksheet

4.150 Schedule of ratings—dental and oral conditions

Missed, decayed teeth, are not considered disabling for compensation purposes. There are two DBQs for the 9900 aka dental rating series. One is for TMJ. The other is for Dental/Oral Conditions, which covers the conditions above. You were not asked about teeth or fillings because they are not disabling or compensable. Breaking a tooth by biting on something does not qualify as service trauma.
