I know this thread is a little old now, but I was looking for someone who has filed for and been awarded service connection for bruxism. I do not have a diagnosis (yet), but have had bruxism for years. I have multiple broken teeth and some missing from where I have destroyed them from the grinding. I don’t only grind my teeth during sleep, but often times I do it during the day, as well. I was just awarded SC for PTSD earlier this year and would like to file a claim for bruxism as secondary to the PTSD. There’s little doubt in my mind that they’re related.
Anyway, my real question is, how the heck do you file a claim for bruxism? I have seen people refer to their Bruxism C&P exams and even being awarded SC for bruxism, but I can’t find anything in the VA rating info for bruxism. When I go onto eBenefits to file a claim, there is not category for bruxism, either. So, how do you file a claim for something they don’t have listed? Read the full post here
