Chronic migraine cases are amplified by jawbone disorder, according to research
(Funda ç ã o de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de S ã o Paulo) A study conducted by researchers in Brazil shows patients with chronic migraine are three times as likely to suffer from severe temporomandibular disorder. Though not a primary cause, the disorder is thought to accentuate and perpetuate sensitivity to pain; therefore, researchers recommend in chronic migraine clinical practice the assessement of the disorder's symptoms.

Training to become a scuba diver? Start at the dentist
Scuba divers may want to stop by their dentist's office before taking their next plunge.

Recreational divers should consider consulting with their dentist before diving if they recently received dental care, says Vinisha Ranna, BDS, lead author and a student in the UB Sch...

Sleep and awake bruxism in adults and its relationship with temporomandibular disorders: A systematic review from 2003 to 2014.
CONCLUSIONS:The evidence based on PSG was not as conclusive as the studies that used surveys and clinical exam to diagnosis bruxism, when bruxism was related to TMD. Sleep bruxism could be associated with myofascial pain, arthralgia and joint pathology as disc displacement and joint noises. Although the evidence at present is inconclusive and does not provide information according to the type of bruxism (bruxism sleep and wakefulness), it is possible to suggest that bruxism would be associated with TMD.

Your body’s “other” pulse
When I take a patient’s pulse, I’m really checking to make sure their heart is beating in rhythm and their blood is flowing regularly. It wasn’t until much later that I learned your body has another pulse — your “dural pulse.” In the 1970s, Dr. John Upledger discovered the dural pulse. He was studying dural tubes at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. The dural tube is a membrane surrounding your spinal cord. It’s filled with cerebral spinal fluid. Dr. Upledger noticed that this spinal fluid moves with a set rhythm. In fact, this dural pulse beats at 6...

Relaxation techniques may be helpful in managing a variety of health conditions, including anxiety associated with illnesses or medical procedures, insomnia, labor pain, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

True or false: Because baby teeth fall out early in life, kids don’t need to get serious about dental health until their permanent teeth start coming in. The answer is FALSE—and that’s exactly the kind of teeth your child could end up with if you don’t take dental health seriously from an early age. Did you know children who develop cavities early in life are at a far greater risk of having cavities in their adult teeth?
