A New Method To Reposition the Displaced Articular Disc For a Patient With Comminuted Condylar Fracture

Conclusion: The method of using sutures to reposition and stabilize the articular disc for a patient with comminuted fractures is effective. There is great significance not only for patients with comminuted condylar fractures but for treatment of TMJ dysfunction especially for patients with high psychological pressure who persist in requiring the removal of metallic anchors although there are no clinical symptoms.

ConclusionOrofacial pain is a common complaint among the patients that come to a dentistry appointment, which may have different diagnosis and treatments. A positive effect on the patient’s symptomatology was confirmed clinically on subsequent dental appointments and monitored by infrared thermography.

Total joint replacement (TJR) is the recommended treatment for end stage temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disease. The goal of treatment is to help return to acceptable function with improvement of maximum incisal opening (MIO) and reduction of pain. When a prosthetic joint shows late complications, the surgical management is open with debridement, cultures and prosthetic replacement as options. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the early outcomes of arthroscopic management of failing prosthetic temporomandibular joints (PTMJ).

End-stage disease of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be managed successfully with alloplastic total replacements, but these can fail because of allergy, infection, wear, fracture, and heterotopic development of bone. We prospectively reviewed the outcome data of all patients who required revision of previously placed replacement joints between 2004 and 2016. Data included pain and diet scores using 100mm visual analogue scales (VAS), and interincisal distance recorded before, and at six weeks, six months and 12 months after operation.

This study assesses the effectiveness of eminectomy in the management of chronic closed lock, refractory to conservative medical management in the largest multi-centred study of its kind in the UK, with a cohort of 167 patients. Temporomandibular mandibular joint disorder affects 30% of adults in the UK. Chronic closed lock is a well-documented sub-type.MethodA retrospective study of patients with refractory closed lock was carried out, where conservative management had been implemented for a minimum of 6  months. Refractory patients were offered eminectomy at three separate centres over a period from 1995 to 2011. Th...

CONCLUSION: Both groups improved over time, however, differences between groups were small. Significant differences between groups were noted for JFLS, TSK-TMD, and GROC. The additive clinical effect of cervical HVLAT to standard care remains unclear in the treatment of TMD. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapy, level 1b.

The coexistence of low back pain (LBP) and temporomandibular disorder (TMD) has often been noted clinically. However, studies of the association between these two conditions involving a large population with longitudinal evidences are lacking. Therefore, the study aimed to investigate the association between LBP and TMD in a nationwide-matched cohort population with a 15-year follow-up. Data of 65,121 patients newly diagnosed with LBP were analyzed, along with those of 195,363 (1:3) sex- and age-matched controls. Multivariate Cox regression analysis was used to determine TMD risk between the LBP and non-LBP groups. Kaplan...

Conclusion: In the present study, it was found that TENS and MENS are equally effective in improving the functional mouth opening. MENS showed better and immediate effect in relief of pain. Microcurrent also has the advantage of being subthreshold, and hence the side effects such as tingling sensation and paresthesia seen to occur in some patients following TENS are absent. TENS and MENS can be considered as the first line of treatment in patients with acute and chronic masticatory muscle pain and also as an effective treatment option in cases of functional mouth opening.
