1151 or not?

Question

I'm wondering if I have a 1151 claim.

I have bad teeth I believe related to psychological disorders(100% P&T), GERD(denied), and bruxism(not yet claimed). In 2014, before becoming 100% P&T, I was in VR&E. While in VR&E, I was seen by the VA dentist who approved outside dental care for full extractions and dentures. For a variety of reasons, I never got past a few extractions and moved halfway across the US. In December 2016, I went to the VA hospital dental clinic in a emergency to have a tooth extracted. The dentist decided I needed all my upper teeth removed. I agreed. The VA dentist mostly agreed with the previous plan for full extractions and dentures. He decided a few of my lower teeth could be saved. I was again approved for outside dental care. This began in Feb. 2017. The first appointment was for cleaning. The second was to start repairing the remaining lower teeth. After he started on the first, it was determined it needed to be extracted. This is where the ordeal begins. In order to deviate from the approved plan, they need to get approval from the VA. This approval didn't happen until July 2017. OK, so we finally got that tooth extracted. On the next appointment 2 weeks later, it's determined another tooth needs deviation from the approved plan. (possible root canal with crown or extraction) Here it is over a month since that appointment. Still no approval.

Here is where I'm think about a 1151. During all this time without upper teeth, I developed TMJ pain with clicking, and headaches. Plus it's a difficult task to have a decent meal. I avoid some foods, such as vegies and some meats because I can't chew them. If I do have these foods, I risk chocking on them.   

Would this fall under 1151? If so, how do I go about filing?

 

Thamks.

I do not see this as a 1151 claim basis.

Are you service connected for PTSD?

Vets have had bruxism  ( TMJ) service connected ,as secondary to PTSD,with strong medical evidence.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
