The VA has service connected bruxism and temporalmandilar joint problems (TMJ) ( in jaws) of veterans, as secondary to their PTSD.

This link shows what I mean:

Also this might help:

This vet had an IME from his dentist and a VA psychiatrist also supported the secondary nature to his PTSD.

Do you mean your PTSD is rated at 70% but you also have an addition SC to get up to the 80%?
