The specific cost of your TMJ treatment can depend on several factors, including:
- Cause of your TMJ disorder(s)
- Extent of damage done
- Level of misalignment
- TMJ symptoms you’re experiencing
If your TMJD is being treated with orthodontics, meaning artificial devices like splints and braces, your TMJ treatment may cost up to $5,000. A full mouth reconstruction TMJ treatment costs between $40,000 and $50,000.
Your TMJ treatment may be covered by insurance depending on your specific case. Some insurance companies consider jaw surgeries medically necessary if the disorder is causing sleep apnea disorder, breathing issues and/or severe speech impediments. Orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery) is cosmetic, so the procedure is elective.
Dousman Family Dentistry accepts most major insurances, including Care Credit. You can check our list of accepted insurances online. If you don’t have dental insurance, we’ll work with you to create an affordable payment plan.
