Hello everyone,
Does the VA usually rate Temporomandibular Disorder as a temporary or permanent affliction? Many TMD cases resolve
on their own over time. So my question is - does the VA usually rate TMD as a temporary condition? If so, what does
that mean? Any insight or guidance much appreciated. I didnt see anything under threads about permanent v. temporary.
Thanks anyone.

Typically they will just SC and rate on its severity so you can later be at 0% if mostly healed up but still SC so you can get it treated at the VHA for free
