TMJ Disorder Survey: Dentists Offer Many Treatment Options (video)

TMJ Disorder survey videoTMJ can drive a person mad, but many dentists offer treatment for temporomandibular joint disorder.

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey that asked dentists if they treat TMJ and TMD, or refer dental patients out to specialists. We wanted to know what percentage of dentists offered temporomandibular joint therapy.

In this survey 4 out of 5 dentists responded that they treat TMJ. They went on to further report that they charge anywhere from $500.00 to $40,000 for TMD treatment.

“Treating lifestyle and stress are huge factors in successfully treating these people!” declared a North Carolina TMJ dentist.

TMJ dentists offer a variety of treatments — enough that patients can get confused. The TMJ dentist needs to clearly explain to the patient what their options are for managing a TMJ disorder.

Endodontists Want Dentists to Refer Root Canals (video)

root canal surveyRoot canals might be something patients dread, but a lot of dentists like doing them — except for the ones who hate them!

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey that asked dentists if the they treat root canals or refer them out to endodontists. This survey elicited a variety of colorful responses.

Many endodontists wished GP dentists would quit attempting to do root canals PERIOD.

Several urban dentists acknowledged they do not enjoy performing root canals and always refer them out, whereas rural dentists stated that they almost never refer their patients out for root canals.

Rural dentists are distinctly more likely to treat root canals themselves, while urban and suburban dentists tend to refer out almost all their root canals.

A Nevada endodontist wrote, “If every dentist could spend one week in my endodontic practice, they would all stop doing endodontics. It is an absolute tragedy . . . the quality of work is terrible. I see so many hacked-up teeth with gigantic accesses, separated files, perforated roots, etc . . . It is embarrassing. I cannot tell patients their dentist is worthless and should never do another root canal in his life . . . “
