As an aside, I will suggest including the following code in your Emacs
customization:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp :tangle "esf-org.el"
  ;; from Nicolas Richard <theonewiththeevillook@yahoo.fr>

  (defun yf/org-electric-dollar nil
    "When called once, insert \\(\\) and leave point in between.
  When called twice, replace the previously inserted \\(\\) by one $."
         (interactive)
         (if (and (looking-at "\\\\)") (looking-back "\\\\("))
             (progn (delete-char 2)
                    (delete-char -2)
                    (insert "$"))
           (insert "\\(\\)")
           (backward-char 2)))
  (define-key org-mode-map (kbd "$") 'yf/org-electric-dollar)
#+end_src

I've been using this for years now and it works very well: I also had
$...$ in my muscle memory.

The only time it can be annoying is if you wish to edit/write org table
expressions directly instead of using org's features for this, such as
editing the equation (C-c ') or inserting one (C-c = with or without
C-u).
