What it means to suffer from TMJ
By Dr. Sid Solomon DDS: Treating TMJ is one of the most rewarding aspects of my practice. I am honored every time a patient puts their trust and health in my hands. I give every patient my all and thanks to Neuromuscular Dentistry I am able to provide results that change lives forever.
I met a patient today that touched my heart very much. She is a comedian and spends her days and nights making people laugh. She is kind and sweet, friendly and polite. She is the kind of person you would want as a friend. Imagine she spends all of her time thinking of lines and stories to make people like you and me laugh. But inside, she is living in a prison of pain. When she explained how her TMJ issues affect her ability to perform and lead a normal life, I felt my insides turn with pain for her. The irony that she makes people laugh while she cries inside is a terrible and true tragedy.
I am happy to report that we will start her treatment next week and I so look forward to helping her. She deserves the best, as we all do!
