When determining the origin of your child’s TMD/facial pain, it’s vital to get properly evaluated before any hopes of a diagnosis can be achieved. This will involve a comprehensive exam by Dr. Roman Sadikoff, the foremost expert in Michigan when it comes to TMD head and facial pain. He and his team will take the time to ensure they understand and can determine the root cause of your child’s problem.

In fact, Dr. Sadikoff routinely treats adults who have head and facial problems since childhood, making it his lifelong mission to ensure these children aren’t patients of his years from now. Dr. Sadikoff will sit down with you and your child to review their symptoms and make a diagnosis based on the information provided.

How We Diagnose TMD, Head/Facial Pain in Children

Head and facial pain can manifest in a multitude of ways. Many kids don’t even realize their head and facial pain originates from jaw problems, or even sleep apnea, but the truth is, they can be connected. Whether your child is experiencing face or throat pain, jaw and eye pain, headaches, or migraines, we will provide a total solution.

Approximately 95 percent of effective treatment depends on a proper diagnosis to reveal the origin of your child’s problem. This diagnosis will reveal the primary problem, thanks to a full diagnostic workup. We will review your child’s medical history in detail and complete a head and neck evaluation. Get peace of mind knowing we use the latest technology, such as 3D scans of the head, to properly diagnose your child.

Once a diagnosis is confirmed, we can discuss non-surgical treatment plan for rehabilitation according to your child’s needs. He or she may just need a customized, 3D printed oral appliance that adjusts the positioning of the jaw. The least invasive, the better!
