Advancing Research and Care for Jaw Disorders
Although less invasive and more evidence-based approaches are available for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs)— a set of 30 disorders that cause pain or malfunction in the jaw joint and muscles of the jaw— some dentists continue to rely on aggressive or costly procedures as a first-line treatment, says a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

What Causes Temporomandibular Joint Problems?
Discussion The mandible normally grows in a symmetric downward and forward movement relative to the skull base. The condyle is the primary growth center. “The mandible is unique in that its 2 joints and growth centers function together as a single unit.” It is the last bone in the body to reach skeletal maturity. The mandible and its growth are important for maxillary growth and therefore many problems that affect the mandible affect the facial and skulls structures as well. These growth problems can be relatively insidious and therefore may need monitoring over longer periods of time such as patients with unde...

What Are Complications of Oropharyngeal Trauma?
Discussion Oropharyngeal trauma is common and ranges from minor contusions to severe trauma of the head and neck. Sudden movement while having a foreign object in the mouth is a very common scenario with falls or collisions being common mechanisms. Common objects include toys, sticks, pens/pencils, chopsticks, toothbrushes, and popsicle sticks. Many of these injuries cause minimal problems such as a contusion to lips (i.e. “fat lip”). In general, the more anterior the location the more common the injury and the less likely to have a severe injury (i.e. lips). Whereas posterior structures are more protected, bu...

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...
