OBJECTIVES: To compare three treatment modalities for the management of myofascial pain of jaw muscles. METHODS: Thirty (N = 30) patients with low pain-related impairment were randomly assigned to receive laser therapy (LST), oral appliance therapy (OA), or counseling (CSL). Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain levels and the Muscular Index (MI) of the Craniomandibular Index were the outcome variables, which were assessed at baseline, at three weeks, three months, and six months...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with Myasthenia gravis (MG) are characterized by muscle weakness that may cause obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device is often needed in order to maintain free breathing during the night and sometimes even during the day. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 29-year-old MG patient is presented who used a CPAP continuously since the age of 12. Tight fitting of a nasal mask applied enough force to cause severe maxillary deformity...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate relationships of vertical facial patterns, natural head position (NHP), and craniocervical posture in young Chinese children with skeletal Class I relationship. METHODS: Ninety-four patients with skeletal Class I relationship were classified into low, average, and high angle groups according to their mandibular plane angle (NSL/ML). Cephalometric radiographs in NHP were taken. Variables representing vertical and sagittal craniofacial morphology, head posture, and craniocervical posture were measured and compared...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy and reliability of inter-arch measurements using digital dental models and conventional dental casts. METHODS: Thirty sets of dental casts with permanent dentition were examined. Manual measurements were done with a digital caliper directly on the dental casts, and digital measurements were made on 3D models by two independent examiners. Intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC), a paired sample t-test or Wilcoxon signed-rank test, and Bland-Altman plots were used to evaluate intra- and inter-examiner error and to determine the accuracy and reliability of the measurements...

OBJECTIVE: Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are a group of conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), leading to jaw dysfunction, joint and muscle pain, and a decrease in quality of life. A communication network of pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators called cytokines maintains the homeostasis of the TMJ. This review will focus on the Interleukin (IL) family of cytokines, which have been quantified in TMJ synovial fluids in a variety of studies. IL-1α and IL-1β have pro-inflammatory effects, while the endogenous receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) inhibits the pro-inflammatory effects of IL-1...

OBJECTIVE:  To evaluate intraoperative complications and postsurgical sequelae associated with arthrocentesis of the TMJ, including injection of Sodium Hyaluronate. METHODS: This retrospective study evaluated 433 arthrocentesis procedures performed in 315 patients between January 2009 and August 2016. The authors reviewed the complications identified during the procedure and the follow-up period. RESULTS: Temporary swelling of the periarticular tissues (95...

OBJECTIVES: To discuss advantages and disadvantages of TMJ arthrocentesis techniques, identifying modifications as reported in the literature. METHODS: A PubMed web-based search was carried out, using the terms TMJ and arthrocentesis, to determine the scope of coverage in well-documented articles in English. RESULTS: Among 237 articles, 12 distinct techniques were described for TMJ arthrocentesis in 12 articles. Among 12 techniques, 5 were classified as double puncture arthrocentesis (DPA) and 7 as single puncture arthrocentesis (SPA)...

OBJECTIVE: Craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD) and craniocervical dysfunction (CCD) are clearly defined musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Relationships with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) have not yet been investigated. The aim of the present study is to establish possible relationships between FMS and CMD/ CCD. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 555 patients with CCD and CMD were investigated with respect to the diagnostic criteria of FMS. In addition to otolaryngologic and dental examination, an instrumental functional analysis for the diagnosis of CMD/CCD was performed...

OBJECTIVE: The direction and amount of retrusive movement may be correlated with the amount of joint space and the maximum intercuspal position of the condyle. The aim of this study was to identify any such correlation using an ultrasonic jaw motion analyzer and digital volumetric tomographic (DVT) scans. METHODS: Thirty-five dental students were selected as subjects. DVT scans were obtained using a next-generation i-CAT CBCT unit, and the direction and amount of retrusive movement were measured with a 3-D analyzer...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether children with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) have altered control of masticatory muscles. METHODS: The muscular activity of 66 children with CLP (n = 33) and without CLP (n = 33), aged 6-12 years was assessed during different tasks (rest, isometry, mastication) using electromyography. RESULTS: The activation for the analyzed muscles was higher in children with CLP at rest (R) and inactive period (IP) (p < 0...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of the current study were: (1) to assess the prevalence of oral habits, bruxism, and temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) among children living in Uganda; (2) to establish whether parafunctional activities are associated with TMDs; and (3) to examine the possible impact of gender and age on the prevalence of bruxism, oral habits, and TMDs. METHODS: This study included 153 children aged 6-17 years. The study consisted of a questionnaire and a clinical examination...

OBJECTIVE: This retrospective study evaluated the use of a single miniplate for the treatment of mandibular angle fractures (MAF). METHODS: Fifty patients with 53 MAF were treated by open reduction and internal fixation with the use of a single miniplate and were analyzed in this study. RESULTS: Five patients with MAF had postoperative complications that required additional procedures. Three patients had postoperative infection, one patient complained of malocclusion in the first postoperative week, and one patient had miniplate exposure three months after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: This study determines the effect of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) on the reliability of mandibular movement assessments. METHODS: The vertical and horizontal jaw movements, as well as overjet and overbite, were measured twice in 56 consecutively recruited adult subjects with TMD according to the RDC/TMD and 29 controls without TMD diagnosis by experienced dentists utilizing a millimeter ruler. The reliability was determined by intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC)...

OBJECTIVE: MMP-13 performs digestion of collagen, which is a primary component of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) articular disc. This study evaluated the expression of MMP-13 in patients with anterior disc displacement with (ADDwR) and without reduction (ADDwoR), and in the presence of TMJ osteoarthrosis. METHODS: Thirty-nine human temporomandibular joint disc samples were collected and divided in two ways: ADDwR (21 samples), ADDwoR (10 samples), and a control group (8 samples); and with osteoarthrosis (10 samples) and without osteoarthrosis (29 samples)...
