There is currently no effective medical treatment for temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJ-OA) due to a limited understanding of its pathogenesis. This study was undertaken to investigate the key role of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signalling in the cartilage and subchondral bone of the TMJ using a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) rat model, an ageing mouse model and a Camurati-Engelmann disease (CED) mouse model. In the three animal models, the subchondral bone phenotypes in the mandibular condyles were evaluated by µCT, and changes in TMJ condyles were examined by TRAP staining and immunohistochemical analysis of Osterix and p-Smad2/3...

Radiolucent lesions of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) represent a diagnostic challenge and a treatment conundrum. Biopsy of the lesions is technically difficult owing to their complex anatomy. The Differential Diagnosis (DD) includes a wide array of lesions including Simple Bone Cyst, Ameloblastoma, Central Giant Cell Granuloma, Hemangioma, Osteoblastoma, Osteochondroma, Chondroblastoma, Chondrosarcoma, Neurofibroma and metastatic malignant lesions though none has a specific predilection for TMJ. Here we present a case report of a large expansile radiolucent lesion of right TMJ in a 22 year old male patient with difficulties involved in diagnosis and management...

INTRODUCTION: Derangement of the temporomandibular joint complicates everyday life, due to the masticatory malfunction and the continuous pain sensation of the head and facial region. The therapy is multidisciplinary and varying. In case of the inefficiency of conservative therapy, minimally invasive intervention is needed with intraarticular injection. AIM: The aim of our study was to examine whether hyaluronic acid injection is more beneficial compared to corticosteroid in 37 joints...

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), commonly associated with mandibular micrognathia, is a serious condition that can lead to various devastating cardiovascular and neurocognitive consequences. Patients of OSAS with micrognathia present with many functional and esthetic problems. Therefore, comprehensive management of these patients requires multiple surgeries and frequent follow-up. Several surgical and non-surgical treatment options have been proposed for the treatment of OSAS. Distraction osteogenesis (DO) in maxillofacial region, although a newer treatment modality, is being increasingly favoured by many surgeons because of its many advantages over other treatment methods...

Ganglion cysts within the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), although uncommon, typically present with swelling, pain, trismus, and difficulty with mastication. The authors report an unusual case of a ganglion cyst in the TMJ of a 52-year-old man who presented with chief complaints of severe headaches and dizziness that had not subsided following treatment with medication, trigger point injections, or sphenopalatine ganglion blocks. The cyst appeared as a nonenhancing, T2 hyperdensity adjacent to the left TMJ condyle on magnetic resonance imaging, supported by the presence of chronic erosion and remodeling of the anterior aspect of the left condylar head on computed tomography...

The rationale for implant full-mouth rehabilitation is believed to present the better quality of life to the older population. This type of modalities preserves the soft and hard tissue of oral cavity. It is also helpful to check the temporomandibular joint disease. Literature exposes that implant full-mouth fixed rehabilitation is one of the taxing procedures in the field of prosthodontics. The current clinical report discusses a customized biomechanical approach for the fabrication of implant complete-mouth rehabilitation...

Viscosupplementation is a minimally invasive technique that replaces synovial fluid by intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid (HA). Although effective in some joints, there is not conclusive evidence regarding temporomandibular disorders. This case series described the efficacy of a viscosupplementation protocol in intra-articular temporomandibular disorders. Ten patients with a diagnosis of disc displacement and/or osteoarthritis by Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) were submitted to four monthly injections of low or medium molecular weight HA...

BACKGROUND: Posterior disc displacement (PDD) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is quite rare. The normal position of a disc is slightly anterior to the condyle, so the chances of disc displacement to the posterior direction are low. CASE PRESENTATION: A 71-year-old Japanese female reported with a chief complaint of lack of occlusion on the right-side molar teeth. Clinical examination revealed lack of occlusal contact in the right posterior region, nearly normal range of mouth opening (41...
