Hello and welcome to Health Care Magic

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) problems are better dealt by a dentist.
So, it is advisable to consult a dentist. On first examination it will be decided by the dentist in which specialty you need to be referred.
Cost of the treatment depends on the problem and management done for it.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
