The effect of tooth cusp morphology and grinding direction on TMJ loading during bruxism
Increased mechanical loading of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is often connected with the onset and progression of temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). The potential role of occlusal factors and sleep bruxism in the onset of TMD are a highly debated topic in literature, but ethical considerations limit in vivo examinations of this problem. The study aims to use an innovative in silico modeling approach to thoroughly investigate the connection between morphological parameters, bruxing direction and TMJ stress. A forward-dynamics tracking approach was used to simulate laterotrusive and mediotrusive tooth grinding for...

Arthrocentesis versus non-surgical intervention as initial treatment for temporomandibular joint arthralgia: a randomized controlled trial with long-term follow-up
Arthrocentesis for arthralgia of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is often only indicated when conservative, non-surgical interventions have failed. However, performing arthrocentesis as initial therapy may facilitate earlier and better recuperation of the joint. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of this therapy with a long-term follow-up. Eighty-four patients were randomly allocated to receive either arthrocentesis as initial treatment (n  = 41) or non-surgical intervention (n = 43).

Association between sexual maturation and anterior disc displacement of temporomandibular joint in adolescents aged 13 –14 years
ConclusionsThis study suggested that sexual maturation has a significant association with ADD both in boys and girls. The increased serum levels of testosterone in boys and prolactin in girls might contribute to the occurrence of TMJ ADD.Clinical relevanceThis study provides key data to support and inform longitudinal studies as well as to explain why ADD prefers in adolescents. Main findings can also be used to prevent the occurrence of ADD and secondary jaw deformities.

The temporalis muscle flap in tmj surgery: is it still a valid option?
In conclusion, this technique, in TMJ surgery, has alternatives with better results, which means that it is no longer the first choice.

Evaluation of Patient Comfort and Impact of Different Anesthesia Techniques on the Temporomandibular Joint Arthrocentesis Applications by Comparing Gow-Gates Mandibular Block Anesthesia with Auriculotemporal Nerve Block
CONCLUSION: Both anesthesia techniques have provided effective results in terms of pain and functional jaw movements in the postoperative period in arthrocentesis treatment.PMID:36090766 | PMC:PMC9453085 | DOI:10.1155/2022/4206275
