Dr. Sid Solomon DDS, founder and leading practitioner at The Center for Cosmetic, Implant, and TMJ Dentistry is undeniably the best doctor to  turn to for all your TMJ issues and neuromuscular dentistry needs.

Commons conditions, such as headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain affect more Americans than most people are aware. According to the American Dental Association, 10.8 million Americans suffer from TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome or disorder). This condition is often characterized by a clicking and popping of the jaw, caused by an improperly aligned jaw. What most people do not realize, however, is that TMJ can significantly contribute to other common problems, such as headaches, migraines, stiff neck, vertigo, and tingling of the fingertips, just to name a few. Dr. Sid Solomon and leading Center for  Neuromuscular Dentistry in Los Angeles offers top-of-line technology and the most successful techniques for treating TMJ, all at affordable prices.  Given our world-class customer service and incredibly friendly and helpful dental staff, there is no reason to turn anywhere else. We offer consultations, exams, x-rays, diagnostic models of your teeth, TENS therapy, bite registration, as well as corrective procedures. Most importantly, our corrective actions and procedures are non-surgical, non-invasive, long-lasting, and offer fast recovery and improved overall health results. Whether you have previously been diagnosed with a known neuromuscular dentistry condition, or if you would just like a consultation to discuss some pain or discomfort you are feeling, which you think may be related to TMJ or another jaw-related condition, give Neuromuscular Dentistry a call today. We would be happy to set up an appointment for evaluation and to discuss your options. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your way to a healthier and pain-free life.  Remember that TMJ pain is REAL, and TMJ relief is a CHOICE.  We are here to help you.

What is Neuromuscular Dentistry? (NM)

Neuromuscular dentistry is the science of accurately determining and then correctly placing the jaw into its optimal position, relieving the symptoms associated with TMJ. While traditional dentistry evaluates primarily the teeth,

bones, and gums, neuromuscular dentistry works with the hard tissues and the soft tissues, muscles and nerves. Dr. Solomon understands the complex relationship between hard and soft facial tissues and works to make that relationship a harmonious one.

When the jaw is misaligned, both the hard and soft tissues are affected and many physiological problems can result.  Common symptoms include  headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder pain, tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, and clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint. In a number of cases, these symptoms are the result of TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome), also referred to as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder).  At the Center for Cosmetic, Implant, and Neuromuscular Dentistry, Dr. Solomon has dedicated his practice to diagnosing these symptoms and alleviating the pain and discomfort they cause.

Dr. Sid Solomon TMJ Evaluation

Dr. Solomon has been trained by the leading TMJ center in the country, the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He has spent over 10 years at LVI perfecting his neuromuscular dentistry skills and keeping up with the latest in TMJ relief. The key to properly treating TMJ is finding the correct bite.  At CCIND, we use highly advanced K7 computer technology and a detailed series of Scans to find the patient’s optimal bite position.  This process begins with TENS therapy to relax the jaw muscles.  Dr. Solomon takes a series of Scans to scientifically determine when the muscles are completely relaxed.  The optimal bite position is then recorded in the process of bite registration.  The measurements are then relayed to an LVI trained Laboratory who fabricates an Orthosis: also know as Orthodic or jaw re-positioning appliance.

What is Gneuromuscular Dentistry?(GNM)

G + NM = Gnathologics + Neuromuscular = GNM 
GNM  is an advanced blend of occlusal protocols and techniques that enhance the dentist’s clinical effectiveness in achieving successful clinical outcomes based on objectively measured criteria as they relate to the gnathic and neuro-muscular systems in dentistry.  Gneuromuscular Dentistry (GNM) is really a combined understanding and application of skill sets required to effectively treat cases comprehensively – It goes beyond the present day concepts of “Neuromuscular Dentistry”.  It is dentistry that focuses on body alignment, optimal mandibular function (quality) and accurate occlusion that results in optimal function and form.  In reality, gnathologics (Gk. study of the jaw) is a missing key to neuromuscular dentistry and neuromuscular concepts are missing key principles and concepts of gnathological teachings. An emphasis on “quality” of physiologic function and quality of resting modes of the masticatory system is of significant interest when occlusal principles are implemented.
In a never ending search to solve the pain puzzle, Dr. Solomon is proud to offer his patients his high level understanding and education in both Neuromuscular and Gneuromuscular Dentistry.  His genuine desire to help TMJ patients has driven him to obtain the gift of understanding the body and occlusion in both NM and GNM realms. Dr. Solomon believes that both Gnathologic and Neuromuscular understanding is required….it’s not a matter of one or the other – It’s BOTH.  Dr. Solomon has received advanced training to optimally apply the occlusal principles in a balanced way, thus making him a true Gneuromuscular Occlusion Expert.
