TMJ Centre Melbourne offers a wide variety of payment options for patients looking to receive treatment for TMJ, headaches and sleep concerns.
How much does TMJ treatment cost?
It is important to remember that all patients are unique and as such, treatment costs may vary greatly.
The cost of the initial consultation is between $295 and $340 depending on whether you just see the Dentist or both Dentist and Chiropractor together.
Payment plans are offered once a deposit is paid through DentiCare – available at 0% interest, and payments can be arranged over 6-12 month periods to help patients with budgeting.
If neuromuscular orthotics are required, our programs may cost between $1650 – $6810 depending on what is assessed at the initial appointment. These costs include review fees in each program.
Our most extensive program is a four month program for those that need to stabilise their jaws – perhaps due to dislocation, or to aid in healing chronic inflammation in the jaw joints and/or to address cranial/structural involvement. This program requires compliancy of fortnightly appointments where we closely monitor progress. We make necessary corrections during review appointments, focusing on cranial/structural issues whilst also monitoring whether the orthotics need adjustment with the changes that occur along the way.
Two types of orthotics are needed for this program, a neuromuscular day appliance and also one for night wear. Eventually you are weaned from the day appliance and continue to wear a night appliance to stop future injury.
Of course not everyone falls into the four month treatment category as mentioned above. It may be that you need another course of action which could range between $2150 – $2625. These costs also include two follow up reviews.
Item numbers are available at the initial consultation for the various treatment options recommended, so that rebates can be sourced through patients Private Health Insurance.
