    TMJ dental specialist

    Hello, do you know any good and affordable TMJ dental specialist. I went to an ENT and he referred me. Last 2018, I was billed 800 for consultation fee, 1200 for panoramic xray and 3500 for a mouth appliance for wearing day and night. Thanks.

    There is not such thing as a TMJ specialist, but if you have persistent issues you should see an oromaxillofacial (OMF) surgeon

    Anyone you can refer to which is affordable. Seems the price here is quite high. My insurance only allows ne 2500hkd per year and they have considered this is a dental case.

    TMJ is a condition, it is not a specialty.
    Dentist will supply a nightguard or splint.
    I'm surprised your insurance covers considering I've checked that most do not.

    An OMF quoted me with $2000 consultation fee and $1000 panoramic xray and not including mouth guard. I guess i will buy those amazon DIY night guard or go to OMF when im vacation out of HK.

    will PM you the name of a prosthodontist who is well regarded in treating TMJ, however all specialists in Hk will not be 'cheap"
