A Comparative Analysis of Intra-articular Injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma and Arthrocentesis in Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

The objective of present study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy of intra-articular platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and arthrocentesis in management of TMDs.Materials and MethodsTwenty-four patients with complaint of reduced mouth opening, joint noise, pain, jaw deviation, not responding to medicinal treatment and coming under group II/III of RDC/TMD were included. Patients were randomly and equally divided in two groups. In group A, arthrocentesis was performed, whereas group B patients underwent intra-articular injections of PRP. Patients were clinically evaluated preoperatively to 12  months postoperatively.ResultBoth the groups showed significant improvement in painless mouth opening (P

Abstract Mechanical overloading of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) promotes both the initiation and progression of TMJ osteoarthritis (OA). New preclinical animal models are needed for the evaluation of the molecular basis of cellular load transmission. This would allow a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of TMJ-OA pain and disability, and help identify new therapeutics for its early diagnosis and management. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of mechanical loading in the progression of TMJ-OA in surgical instability arising from unilateral partial discectomy (UPD) in a murine mod...

; K Abstract Background: Pain in the temporomandibular region is a main complaint causing disability and distress among temporomandibular disorders sufferers. Objectives: The aim of the study was, over an 11-year follow-up on Finnish adult population, to investigate the prevalence of clinically assessed pain-related temporomandibular disorder (TMD) signs, i.e. temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and masticatory muscles (MM) pain on palpation, and their association with sociodemographic background and denture status. Methods: The data were based on the nationally representative Finnish Health 2000 and Health 2011 Surveys...

This article reviews psychological interventions for pain. this includes interventions that have been researched in a range of persistent pain settings, including but not limited to those that have been directly applied to persistent orofacial pain (POFP). All current psychological interventions for persistent pain are underpinned by a biopsychosocial understanding of the complex and multifactorial nature of pain. the main currently applied interventions are described, along with their rationale and selected relevant research. To date, psychological treatments which have been shown to persistent pain demonstrate small but ...
