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...

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...

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...

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...
