Dental malocclusion is not related to temporomandibular joint clicking: a logistic regression analysis in a patient population.
Conclusions: Findings from the present investigation suggested that in a population of TMD patients, the contribution of dental malocclusion features to predict TMJ click sounds is minimal with no clinical relevance. PMID: 23957663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThe absorbed dose within all radiosensitive tissues varied considerably in relation to examination type, x-ray unit, clinical settings, and patient age. The mean doses were smaller when using 2 (bilateral) 4 × 4 cm volumes than with use of one 14 × 5 cm volume.

The aim of this study was to map and compare the distributions of absorbed doses with Gafchromic film for panoramic radiography and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) examinations of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) by using adult and child phantoms.

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Minervini G, Nucci L, Lanza A, Femiano F, Contaldo M, Grassia V Abstract Clicking may appear in the initial, middle, or final phase of mandibular opening. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the most appropriate diagnostic imaging for diagnosing disc position. With anterior repositioning splint (ARS), disc recapture is achieved through a change in the position of the condyle to encourage adaptation of the retrodiscal tissues. Three patients reported pain and sounds during movement and clicking in the final phases; also, the MRI confirmed anteriorized disc position and the treatments cons...
ConclusionsCondylar changes in the TMJ, judged on panoramic radiography, in children with JIA, have impact on craniofacial growth. Even minor alterations seem to have an impact.

However, there are no reports on the three-dimensional postoperative volumetric transformation of the condyle, especially with regard to fragmented cases. Protruding hardware can lead to severe complications, so the goal of this study was to examine the amount of condylar bony resorption occurring after ...

the aim of the study was to study the effect of intra-muscular injection of Botulinum toxin-A into masticatory muscles on physiotherapy pain and mouth opening outcomes following surgical intervention in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis cases and verify this effect using electromyographic studies.
