The field of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and bruxism research has recently witnessed a publishing trend leaning towards an overuse of systematic reviews (SRs) that contribute little or nothing to current knowledge. The majority of these seem to be more methodological exercises than manuscripts prepared to provide clinicians and researchers with up-to-date information to advance knowledge. In addition, given the increasing number of researchers who have been reviewing the dental literature on various topics without seemingly having any specific clinical or scientific background in the topic under review, the ultimate value of some SRs is questionable...

BACKGROUND: Orofacial Appearance is increasingly recognized as an important component of patient-reported outcomes in dentistry. While the Orofacial Esthetic Scale (OES) has sufficient psychometric properties to characterize dental patient's global assessment of Orofacial Appearance, the equivalence of alternative methods of administration has not been demonstrated so far. OBJECTIVE: Aim of this study was to investigate whether and to what extend method of administration affects OES scores...

The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the prevalence of tinnitus in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and the possible effects of TMD treatment on tinnitus symptoms. A search of the PubMed, Web of Science and Cochrane databases from inception of each database up to January 2017 found 222 articles. After independent screening of abstracts by two of the authors, we assessed 46 articles in full text. The inclusion and exclusion criteria reduced these to 25 articles of which 22 studies reported prevalence based on 13 358 patients and 33 876 controls, and eight studies reported effect of TMD treatment on tinnitus based on 536 patients and 18 controls...

Extensive investigation into the mechanism of chronic obstructive sialadenitis (COS) calls for a reliable model that mimics the onset and progression of the disease. Duct obstruction is closely correlated with COS, and partial duct obstruction is usually observed in COS. Partial ligation of ducts or vessels is a valid treatment to mimic pathological processes in certain animal studies. In this study, we developed a novel animal model of COS by incomplete ligation of Wharton's duct and clarified the corresponding morphological alterations in the submandibular gland...

BACKGROUND: The mandibular advancement device (MAD) is widely used for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) treatment, and several studies have demonstrated its effectiveness. However, no comprehensive studies have yet examined the biomechanical safety of the MAD. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to analyse the biomechanical effect of different protrusion positions of a MAD on the teeth and facial bones. METHODS: The posterior restorative forces due to the stretched mandibular muscles were measured by pressure sensors attached to the experimental mandibular advancement device for mandibular protrusions of 10-70% of the maximum protrusion of the subject...

The aim of this study was to determine whether there exists a higher prevalence of tinnitus in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) than in patients without TMDs. A systematic review was conducted in PubMed/MEDLINE for articles published between January 1992 and April 2018 in accordance with the PRISMA statement. Studies were included in this review only if they assessed TMDs using the research diagnostic criteria (RDC)/TMD or DC/TMD. A total of five studies were included in the systematic review, and a random-effects meta-analysis of three of the studies was conducted...

The aim of this systematic review (SR) was to determine the association between temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and pubertal development. Due to the inadequacy of the conventional PICO (Population, Interventions, Comparisons and Outcome) format used for intervention-based SRs, the Joanna Briggs Institute's guidelines for synthesising evidence related to associations with a focus on aetiology were adopted. A search of the PubMed and LIVIVO databases covering the period from January 1980 to May 2018 yielded four publications, which fulfilled the inclusion criteria...

This study aimed to investigate the possible influence of the RAP on dental implant osseointegration. Orthognathic surgery was set as an intervention for RAP, and a multi-center cohort study of two groups was undertaken. Group O included patients with single implant placement at least 4 months after orthognathic surgery and functional loading for more than 1 year, while controls (Group C) were without any major surgery. Clinical and radiographic assessments of implants, including changes in marginal bone levels, were analysed at baseline, 6- and 12-months follow-up...
