How Severe are Your Symptoms?
The first factor which can impact the cost of your temporomandibular disorder (TMD) treatment is the extent of your symptoms. Mild TMD often does not require treatment from your dentist. They may recommend home care techniques, such as stretching or applying hot or cold packs. For slightly more difficult cases, your dentist may recommend a split or mouth guard. These devices typically cost less than $200.
However, for chronic TMD, you may require more advanced and complex treatment plans to provide the necessary relief. If you require multiple procedures to achieve the desired results, your final cost will likely be higher.
For TMJ disorder, your dentist can recommend non-surgical or surgical treatment options. Non-invasive treatments are generally used first, with surgery as a last resort in case other treatments are unsuccessful. In general, non-surgical treatments are less expensive. However, you may require a combination of non-surgical procedures to relieve your symptoms, including orthodontics, crowns, medication, and a mouth guard. Since each treatment is priced separately, your entire TMJ treatment could cost $10,000.
Surgery is typically more expensive than conservative options. A simple procedure, such as minimally invasive arthrocentesis, may cost as little as $300. However, more complex procedures tend to cost more. In some cases, fees can reach $50,000 or more.
Treating the Damage to Your Smile
In many cases, TMD can cause significant damage to the integrity of your smile before you are diagnosed. You may need restorations or other procedures for chipped or cracked teeth or to restore the height of teeth worn by chronic clenching or grinding. The extent of the damage to your smile will affect the final price of your treatment.
