In all my years serving the community as LA’s premiere TMJ specialist, I have never ever found one case to be exactly like another. TMJ, like people, is different every single time. There are different nuances to each case, and I treat every patient as the individual they are.
Nevertheless, the most common symptoms of TMJ that I have come across at my TMJ specialty office in Los Angeles include but are not limited to:
Headaches, Migraines, Jaw locking, jaw clicking and popping, facial pain, jaw pain, ringing in the ears(tinnitus), dizziness, neck pain and back pain, bruxism, clenching and grinding. The list goes on and on but these are some of the major points.
At the office of Dr. Sid Solomon, DDS, the initial consultation and examination is meant to first and foremost come up with a solid diagnosis and determine the most important question of all: IS IT TMJ? I strive to come up with honest diagnosis to be best of my medical abilities every time. Once we have that area covered, we will then go over treatment options to determine the absolute best TMJ treatment for each and every patient.
The time I spend during the consultation is very precious because this is the diving board into the journey of treatment that may follow and I take this responsibility very seriously. If you are experiencing symptoms that either you yourself or your doctor suspect might be TMJ related, then do no hesitate and take action now! You have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
I remain forever your TMJ expert, Dr. Sid Solomon DDS
