TMJ Faq’s

How much does a TMJ Consultation cost?

TMJ consultation at Houston Dentists at Post Oak costs $150.

How much does the bite test cost?

The bite test, including the orthotic is $4,000. This is a fixed cost, even if you require additional visits to achieve proper jaw alignment.

Will my dental insurance cover the procedure?

We do accept most insurance plans, however typically TMJ treatments are not fully covered. We will be happy to offer financing for TMJ treatment upon request.

Is financing available?

Yes. We work with a third party service who offers financing for approved patients.

Is Doctor Pigneri a TMJ Specialist?

There is no form of specialization to become a “TMJ Specialist” and therefore no dentist can claim this on their website.  Dr. Pigneri is a Neuromuscular dentist which is an area of dentistry focused on the proper alignment of the jaw.  Dr. Pigneri uses his Neuromuscular dentistry background to permanently treat pain and discomfort caused by TMJ.

How long does it take to relieve my TMJ pain?

Every patient is different and in some cases it can take longer to fully adjust the jaw.  Most patients have relief in a few weeks, but some can take months contingent upon how much the jaw needs to be adjusted to achieve the desired alignment.
