Los Angeles Neuromuscular Dentistry Specialist
Dr. Sid Solomon
According to the American Dental Association, 10.8 million Americans suffer from temporomandibular syndrome (TMJ). The condition is caused by an improperly aligned jaw, which contributes to a myriad of problems such as: (1) headaches or migraines (2) vertigo (3) stiff neck, (4) tingling of the finger tips, etc. Neuromuscular dentistry seeks to cure TMJ by retraining the muscles, tissues, and nerves to properly align the jaw at rest. If left untreated, the jaw must work harder to perform basic functions, such as chewing or speaking and in turn may repeatedly injure the surrounding muscles.
Thanks to cutting edge advances in neuromuscular dentistry, head and neck discomfort can now be effectively treated without medication or surgery.
Dr. Sid Solomon is a World Class Los Angeles cosmetic dentist with unique expertise in neuromuscular dentistry.

Solving the Pain Puzzle with Neuromuscular Dentistry
Dentistry plays a vital role in diagnosing and treating many chronic aches and pains. Neuromuscular dentistry is a branch of dentistry that considers the physiologic aspects of head and neck symptoms. The focus of neuromuscular dentistry is finding the etiology of a number of TMJ-related symptoms, such as…
Sore neck muscles
Tinnitus (Ringing in the ears)
Worn, chipped teeth
Sore jaw joints
Numbness of the fingertips
