Would You Like a 2nd Opinion?

Hello, this is Dr. James Segulyev and I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of TMJ Disorders. If you’ve recently received a diagnosis for your TMD and are wondering if you need a second opinion, I encourage you to contact my office for an appointment at (972) 661-3666. I provide complimentary 2nd opinion consultations for TMJ Disorders.

TMJ is a serious condition and its diagnosis should not be taken lightly. A complete and thorough understanding of the biological issues at hand is essential for the development of an effective treatment plan which allows a patient to obtain relief and lasting results.

When it comes to TMJ health, a second opinion is never a bad option because it helps ensure the accuracy of diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis paves the way for a successful outcome and opens the door to improved oral health, general health, healing, wellness, and longevity.

What Is a Second Opinion?

In dentistry, a second opinion is when a patient visits a dentist to ask their opinion about a diagnosis or treatment plan that they’ve received previously from another dental health professional. There are many reasons that a patient may decide to do this. They may feel like something is off with the first diagnosis they received or they may want to explore other treatment options. Sometimes, a patient gets a second opinion simply because they want some extra confirmation and assurance.

There’s nothing wrong with getting a second opinion. First off, it’s your right as a patient. After all, we’re talking about your health; what else could be more important! Secondly, getting a second opinion could be a very good thing because it may help put your mind at ease. And you may get the chance to learn more about your dental health and gain a deeper understanding of what’s going on with you as well as your available treatment options.

TMJ Misdiagnosis Is Common

Another good reason for getting a second opinion is that TMJ Disorder is a commonly misdiagnosed issue. In some cases, a patient will be misdiagnosed three or four times before they receive an accurate diagnosis. These patients end up receiving improper treatment, paying for visits to the wrong specialists, and being overburdened by healthcare costs.

Most commonly, primary physicians are responsible for TMJ misdiagnosis but even general dentists can make mistakes. This is because TMJ is complicated. It manifests under a variety of symptoms that make it look like other conditions. Furthermore, many physicians simply do not have the knowledge or training required to diagnose TMD. TMJ treatment requires highly specialized training. Neither primary care physicians nor general dentists are required to have this training.

When Should You Get a Second Opinion?

If you are concerned about a recent diagnosis you have received for TMJ, I highly advise getting a second opinion. A second opinion can make the difference between inadequate care and your ability to achieve restored health and lasting relief.

If any of these applies to your situation, it may be a good idea to get a second opinion. A second opinion can provide confirmation and assurance, reveal new information, and help resolve unanswered questions. Whatever your reasons, my team and I are here to help. Together, we can get you back on the path towards optimal dental health, wellness, vitality, and longevity.
