Then, I got a written estimated saying I need a night guard for $1197 and 3 follow up appointments at $157 each. I was told by the second doctor that if I didn't take care of my clenching at this time, I would have TMJ later in life.
I was in the exam room for maybe 20 minutes and paid $297 for this "consultation". WOW, I should feel glad I don't have TMJ-- but DAMN I am extrememly upset at what little I got. (Dental insurance will not cover this expense, maybe that should have been my first clue, ha)
