TMJ/Neuromuscular Dentistry

TMJ with Dr. Sid Solomon DDS

Do you suffer from persistent migraines, headaches, or facial pain? Have you searched from doctor to doctor for relief with no success? Dr. Sid Solomon DDS might be able to help. You may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder or more simply known as TMJ. TMJ often masks as other conditions, but should actually be treated by a neuromuscular dentist. Dr Sid Solomon DDS  has received advanced training in neuromuscular dentistry from the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and successfully treated TMJ cases for the past 28 years.

What is TMJ?

TMJ results when your jaw is not properly aligned. As a result, your jaw muscles, nerves, and joints must overwork to close your jaw. This stress causes many symptoms including:

  • Headaches and/or migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Neck or facial pain and soreness
  • Tinnitus (Ringing in the ears)
  • Numbness of the fingertips
  • Excessively worn or chipped teeth

How is TMJ treated?

Dr. Solomon uses the most effective and noninvasive treatment to realign the jaw and eliminate any pain associated with TMJ. The entire treatment process is completely painless and does not involve any shots, drilling, or surgical procedures. In fact, the entire diagnosis and treatment process will take place in our special Relaxation Room to make you feel as if you are being pampered at a high end spa. Our office uses advanced technology including myomonitor relaxation TENS therapy and electromyography (EMGs) to determine your most optimal bite. Dr. Solomon will evaluate the position and movement of your jaw using EMGs and Computerized Mandibular Scanning. Then, Dr. Solomon will use TENS (myomonitor) therapy to relax your jaw. After an hour, your jaw will be completely relaxed and in its optimal alignment. An impression or mold will be taken and a custom-made plastic orthotic will be made. This orthotic will be worn to hold the jaw in its proper alignment. As a result, any associated pain will be eliminated. Through this completely painless procedure, you will be able to finally get rid of those pesky headaches!
