ConclusionIntraoperative CBCT raises the problems of radiation exposure and increased operating time. However, it represents a useful imaging tool and a navigation system in complex situations as osseous dysplasia and surgery of the temporo-mandibular joint.

ConclusionSome times TMJ ankylosis can present with atypical presentations in which bones of the skull base are involved. These are very rare and could be termed as ‘skull base ankylosis’. Such cases can be surgically challenging and some surgical treatment modalities like Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS), 3D Navigation and Piezo-electric surgery could be beneficial in avoiding complications and facilitating efficient treatment.

CONCLUSIONS:Results of complex rehabilitation, including myorelaxation procedures, medicamentation treatment, splint therapy, an individual plan of myogymnastic exercises for chewing muscles, and correction of posture using individual insoles showed its effectiveness more than 12.49 ±2.18% in comparison with traditional methods of treatment.

Abstract The accurate diagnosis and treatment of pain is dependent upon the knowledge of variables that might alter this response. Some of these variables are the locality of the noxious stimulus, the sex of the individual, and the presence of chronic diseases. Among these chronic diseases, hypertension is considered a serious and silent disease that has been associated with hypoalgesia. The main goal of this study was to evaluate the potential nociceptive differences in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) regarding the locality of the stimulus, i.e., the temporomandibular joint or paw, the sex, and the role of ...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data showed consistency among the three applications to analyze bone radiomics in high-resolution CBCT. Further studies are necessary to evaluate the applicability of those variables as new bone imaging biomarkers to diagnose bone diseases affecting TMJs.

This report describes a technique to facilitate the transfer of jaw-relation records to a digital mounting template. Once digitally mounted, the casts can be printed with mounting plates attached to the temporomandibular joints in the appropriate orientation. They can then be placed in an articulator and used for layering porcelain or luting titanium abutments for screw-retained restorations.

AsahinaAbstractOur aim was to evaluate the long-term skeletal stability of the mandible in 21 patients after orthognathic surgery with physiological positioning. The measurement points SNB, B point (X, Y), Pog (X, Y), and the angle of the ramus were measured on cephalometric photographs to assess skeletal stability preoperatively, immediately after operation, and one and two years postoperatively. In addition, we evaluated the clinic...
