I live in Essex and my usual and understanding dentist is on long term sick leave. The locum is refusing to fill a back tooth because I have limited opening and is insisting I get treatment for a TMJ problem she says I have. I have always had limited opening problems however but regardless of this in 2010 with a previous dentist in another town where I lived I had veneers fitted and lots of white fillings. I managed with the fibro but had to have 2 week rests throughout. Does anyone know of an understanding dentist in the Braintree, Colchester, Chelmsford area who might help. It could NHS or private.
