Post Equilibration

I am in the process of having some bridgework done by a Prosthodontist that I was referred to by my dentist. The Prosthodontist is recommending that I also have an Equilibration done, a $1600 procedure. I have not noticed a problem with my bite, however I do sometimes grind my teeth at night. Another dentist I found on the internet and e-mailed says he charges only $325 for an Equilibration. I don't understand how the can be such a cost difference for the same procedure. Has anyone had a similar situation. I would appreciate any thoughts on the subject.

thanks

I would go to the TMJ Board if I were you and search on the word equilibration. A lot of people there blame thier TMJ on equilibrations done by prosthedontists. I would do a lot of research before having this done.
