Role of estrogens in the genesis of painful musculoskeletal joint disorders
Conclusiones: El rol de los estrógenos en los trastornos musculares y articulares se basan más que nada en correlaciones entre uno y otro, pero el mecanismo por el cual estarían asociados no esta del todo claro.Abstract: Introduction: The prevalence of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) tends to be higher among women. The severity of their symptoms is related to the age of the patients, in the case of women with a peak between 20-40 years. Objective: The objective of this study is to carry out a literature review regarding the role of estrogens in joint musculoskeletal disorders. Method: The online search engine PubMed was used with the terms MeSH "Temporomandibular Joint Disorders ” and “ Estrogens ” together with the Boolean term “ AND ” . Results: We observed a positive relationship between the levels of estrogen and the presence of muscular and articular disorders, with higher prevalence among women. Conclusions: The role of estrogen in muscle and joint disorders is based mostly on correlations between one and the other, but the mechanism by which they would be associated is not entirely clear.

ConclusionsA simple noninvasive protocol for managing cTMD with self-help, exercises, and oral devices resulted in clinically and statistically meaningful improvements in pain, function, and quality of life.
ConclusionsPatients treated with the Zimmer Biomet Microfixation patient-matched TMJ prosthesis experience improvements in pain, MIO, and ability to masticate. Future studies are needed to assess long-term outcomes prospectively.
Temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJOA) is a prevalent source of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Women are more commonly diagnosed with TMD and are more likely to seek care at tertiary orofacial pain clinics. Limited knowledge regarding mechanisms underlying temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain impairs development of improved pain management strategies. In a rat model of unilateral TMJOA, monosodium iodoacetate (MIA) produces joint pathology in a concentration-dependent manner. Unilateral MIA produces alterations in meal patterns in males and females without altering overnight time spent eating or weight acros...
CONCLUSIONS: The pathological alterations verified in these arthropathies involved diseases that were predominantly proliferative, i.e., unilateral condylar hyperplasia, osteochondroma and synovial chondromatosis of the tumor or pseudotumor type and bony ankylosis associated with callus formation of the reparative type, and less frequent degenerative changes for which the disease is so named.

For several decades, the multidisciplinary field of tissue engineering has striven to improve conventional methods of dental, oral, and craniofacial rehabilitation for millions of people annually. Several bone tissue engineering strategies are now readily available in the clinic. Enrichment of autologous products, growth factors, and combination approaches are discussed as ways to enhance the surgeon ’s traditional armamentarium. Lastly, cutting-edge research such as customized 3-dimensional printed bone scaffolds, tissue engineering strategies for volumetric muscle loss, and temporomandibular joint disc and condyle ...
Arthroscopy is a diagnostic-therapeutic technique used in the treatment of disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The difficulties of arthroscopy lie in the manipulation of the tools, which is why training in the technique of triangulation in artificial models is essential. We developed a training system based on the techniques of arthroscopy in the TMJ, using simulators. The first simulator was a metal box containing three holes for insertion of the instruments, and the second was a human artificial model made of polymers.
CONCLUSION: The biofilm analysis showed a higher incidence of clinical conditions in the rural population. The place of residence also influenced self-perception and the clinical oral health condition of elderly people; the rural population presented the worst results.
Sk ármeta, Nicolas Patri / Pesce, Maria Cecilia / Saldivia, Josefina / Espinoza-Mellado, Paula / Montini, Francisca / Sotomayor, ClaudioPage 662 - 669Objective: The understanding the etiology of painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD) has evolved over the last eight decades. Evidence-based systematic research had questioned historical concepts and abandoned preconceived dogmas based purely on mechanically based etiologies, transforming TMD into a complex musculoskeletal chronic pain model. Unfortunately, many of these old ideas persist in undergraduate education and the dental community. Revisiting the historical ...
