Objective To investigate physical therapy treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction in patients with a diagnosis of disc displacement without reduction with limited opening (DDWoR wLO). Methods Records of 97 patients with DDWoR wLO who received physical therapy in one outpatient clinic were used in this cross-sectional study. Outcomes included number of visits, maximum active interincisal opening, self-reported pain, and patient satisfaction. Results The average number of physical therapy visits per patient was 5...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the characteristics of brain activation during unilateral premolar occlusion. METHODS: Functional magnetic resonance imaging was collected from 10 healthy volunteers during occlusion of the left first premolar (L1), left second premolar (L2), and right first premolar (R1). The brain activation patterns were analyzed, and the primary sensorimotor cortex, supplementary motor area, insula, thalamus, and prefrontal cortex were chosen as regions of interest...

OBJECTIVE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common, potentially life-threatening, but underdiagnosed condition. The study aimed to test the role of facial myofunctional alterations in OSA screening. METHOD: Sixty-one individuals with sleep complaints were evaluated by the Orofacial Myofunctional Evaluation with Scores (OMES) protocol before undergoing polysomnography. The performance of each of the protocol scores in OSA screening was tested. RESULTS: The nonparametric correlation of the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) was significant for 18 of the 41 variables of the OMES protocol...

Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate, quantitatively, the volumetric effects of stabilization splint therapy on the masseter muscle of sleep bruxism (SB) patients. Methods The magnetic resonance (MR) images of 16 SB patients diagnosed by polysomnography (PSG) who used stabilization splints for four months were obtained before and after the therapy. The masseter muscle volume was calculated using Cavalieri's principle on the MR images. Results After the splint therapy, the mean volume of the masseter muscle did not reduce significantly...

Objective To evaluate the effect of resistance training (RT) regarding potential hazard for dental wear, tooth abfractions, temporomandibular joint disc displacement, limitation in mouth opening, and existence of cervical spine disorders. The initial study hypothesis was that extensive resistance trainees (ExRT) would suffer from the above-mentioned symptoms more often than recreational trainees (RcT). Methods A controlled comparative study among male gym members via questionnaires and a clinical examination...

OBJECTIVE: The null hypothesis was that mandibular amplitude, velocity, and variability during gum chewing are not altered in subjects with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) internal derangements (ID). METHODS: Thirty symptomatic subjects with confirmed ID consented to chew gum on their left and right sides while being tracked by an incisor-point jaw tracker. A gender and age matched control group (p > 0.67) volunteered to be likewise recorded. Student's t-test compared the ID group's mean values to the control group...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the potential relationships between the intensity of tinnitus associated with temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and potential etiologic factors, including age, gender, freeway space, sleep bruxism (SB), joint clicking, and headache. METHODS: The sample was comprised of 90 patients without any hearing loss, as confirmed by otorhinolaryngology, who self-reported subjective tinnitus and simultaneous TMD, based on the Research Diagnostic Criteria for TMD (RDC/TMD)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the characteristics and outcomes of patients who underwent surgical treatment for stage 2 medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) versus osteomyelitis. METHODS: This retrospective study compared the following variables in 73 patients with stage 2 MRONJ versus 89 patients with osteomyelitis: impaired wound healing after surgery, sex, age, the presence of actinomycosis, location of the jaw lesion, and involvement of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN)...

OBJECTIVE: Valid and reliable recording is a key requirement for accurately simulating individual jaw movements. METHODS: Horizontal condylar inclination (HCI) and Bennett's angle were measured using a digital jaw tracker (Cadiax® Compact 2) in 27 young adults. Three mounting methods (paraocclusal tray adapter, periocclusal tray adapter, and tray adapter with mandibular clamp) were tested. RESULTS: The mean values of the HCI differed by up to 10° between the mounting methods; however, the values for Bennett's angle did not differ substantially...

Objective The aim of the study is to determine association between depressive symptoms and the electrical activity of muscles in maximum voluntary clench in a group of young adults. Methods A total of 186 volunteers (Females = 98, Males = 88), with a mean age of 19 years, were recruited to the study. All participants took a questionnaire survey stating the level of depression (Beck's scale), clinical examination, and instrumental diagnostics (EMG). Results Symptoms of mild or medium depression were found in 35 of the subjects (18...

BACKGROUND: Trismus is a problem commonly encountered by the dental practitioner. It has a number of potential causes, and its treatment will depend on the cause. However, there are very few reports of trismus due to fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) following third molar surgery. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: FOP is a rare human genetic disorder with characteristic clinical features like progressive formation of extraskeletal bone or heterotopic ossification and congenital malformation of the great toes...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the frequency and age distribution of Axis I and Axis II diagnoses among Polish patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). METHOD: One hundred sixty-three (n = 163) consecutive adult patients seeking TMD treatment were assessed based on the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) guidelines. Descriptive statistics on the frequency of diagnoses and mean age of the diagnostic groups was performed. RESULT: Frequency of muscle disorders, disc displacements, and other joint disorders was 56...

Aims The aim of this study was to test subjective interpretation accuracy via digital polling of a large group of dentists to determine whether dentists can reliably interpret occlusal forces by visually assessing articulating paper markings. Methods One hundred fifty-two dentists selected the most forceful occlusal contact in five occlusal-view photographs of articulating paper marks that were compared against T-Scan® relative occlusal levels of the same tooth contacts. Results The mean correct response was a mere 13...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prevalence of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) in dental students and its correlation with anxiety. METHODS: After probability sampling, 105 students were selected. The diagnosis of TMD was carried out using the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) - Axis I; the anxiety level was obtained by the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). Data from TMD and anxiety were calculated through frequency and Chi-square test to assess the association between TMD and anxiety, considering a significance level of 5%...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to identify a marker for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) osteoarthritis (OA) diagnosis by comparing the concentrations of urinary pyridinoline (PYD), deoxypyridinoline (DPD), and C-terminal telopeptides type I collagen (CTX-I), and CTX-II of TMJ OA patients with those of a non-symptomatic group. METHODS: PYD, DPD, CTX-I, and CTX-II concentrations in the urine of 36 non-symptomatic subjects and 31 TMJ OA subjects were analyzed...

Marco Sagripanti, Carlotta Viti
OBJECTIVES: Central sensitization (CS) has been found in patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD), craniofacial pain (CP) and primary headaches, but its clinical implications remain uncertain. The first aim was to provide a synthesis of the current state of knowledge about the link between CS and TMD associated with primary headaches; the second goal was to find methodologies to assess and treat CS in this subgroup of patients. METHODS: A narrative review of the literature was conducted...

OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the distractive effect of a unilateral pivot splint on patients with unilateral disc displacement without reduction. METHODS: The study group was comprised of 18 patients who had no history of treatment with removable prosthetic restorations of molars, premolars, or canine teeth, and no previous treatment for temporomandibular disorder. Joint spaces measurements made on magnetic resonance images indicated the affected side to be narrower than the healthy side...
