AU - Takano-Yamamoto, T.. AU - Sugimoto, T.. PY - 2004/5/15. Y1 - 2004/5/15. N2 - Immunohistochemistry for vanilloid receptor subtype 1 (VR1), vanilloid receptor 1-like receptor (VRL-1) and P2X3 receptor was performed in the rat temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Blood vessels in the articular disk and capsule, the synovial membrane and the fibrous tissue around the condylar process were innervated by VR1- or P2X3 receptor-immunoreactive (ir) nerve fibers. However, VRL-1-immunoreactivity (ir) could not be detected in the TMJ. Retrograde tracing and immunohistochemical methods revealed that 25%, 41% and 52% of TMJ neurons in the trigeminal ganglion (TG) exhibited VR1-, VRL-1- and P2X3 receptor-ir, respectively. VR1-ir TMJ neurons were mostly small to medium-sized, whereas VRL-1- and P2X3 receptor-ir TMJ neurons were ...

PMID: 9610308 To study the role of the nervous system in temporomandibular joint arthritis, substance P-, calcitonin gene-related peptide-, and neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactivity in the trigeminal ganglia and temporomandibular joint of rats was examined. Arthritis was induced in female Lewis rats through bilateral injection of a suspension of heat-killed Mycobacterium butyricum in paraffin oil into the temporomandibular joint. Control rats received paraffin oil via the same route. Tissues were collected for neuropeptide extraction 28 days after injection and analyzed by radioimmunoassay and reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatogrpahy. Calcitonin gene-related peptide was significantly increased in the arthritic trigeminal ganglia. Substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and neuropeptide Y in the arthritic temporomandibular joint were significantly increased as compared to controls. The results of this study show that sensory and sympathetic neuropeptides may possibly be ...

You may not have heard of it, but you use it hundreds of times every day. It is the Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ), the joint where the mandible (the lower jaw) joins the temporal bone of the skull, immediately in front of the ear on each side of your head. A small disc of cartilage separates the bones, much like in the knee joint, so that the mandible may slide easily; each time you chew you move it. But you also move it every time you talk and each time you swallow (every three minutes or so). It is, therefore, one of the most frequently used of all joints of the body and one of the most complex ...

AU - Throckmorton, G. S.. PY - 2000/4/1. Y1 - 2000/4/1. N2 - This study evaluated the common clinical assumption that condylar translation and mouth opening at the incisor are closely related. The sample studied comprised 27 adult females (23-35 years), selected for normal temporomandibular function, occlusion, and skeletal patterns. Condylar and mandibular central incisor movements (straight-line distances and curvilinear pathways) were recorded in three dimensions (3D) for 20 s with an optoelectric (Optotrak®) jaw-tracking system while each participant performed multiple maximum opening cycles. Masticatory analysis and multilevel statistical programs computed the 3D movements of the incisors and condylar hinge axis during opening and closing. The incisor point moved an average straight-line distance of 46.6 mm ...
TMJ refers to the Temporo-mandibular Joint, or jaw joint. You have a pair of these joints, one on each side of the head between the lower jaw (mandible) and the side (temporal) bone of the skull, just in front of the ear.The TMJs function is to allow the lower jaw to move so that you can chew and swallow, speak, yawn and do all the other normal jaw movements. This joint also allows you to clench and/or grind your teeth. The temporo-mandibular joint is a synovial joint and includes ligaments, tissue between the jawbone and the ear canal and a fibrous disc which sits between the head of the mandible (condyle) and the joint surface (articular surface) of the skull.. TMD stands for Temporo-Mandibular Disorders and includes a whole range of conditions which can affect the joint. Some clinicians will use the term TMJ to refer to these disorders.. The temporo-mandibular joint is different from the bodys other joints. The combination of hinge and sliding motions makes this joint among the most ...
Tumoral calcinosis is an uncommon clinicopathological condition which is characterized by the formation of calcium salt deposition in intra-articular or peri-articular soft tissues. It usually presents as a focal growth of hard tissue, either solitary or multiple, beneath the skin and connective tissue. Diagnostic techniques mainly include clinical and radiographic evaluation. The most commonly involved locations include the hip, elbow, shoulder and knee. Involvement of the head and neck regions are far less common. There have been 5 case reports of temporomandibular joint involvement in the literature so far. We present a case report which describes the diagnosis and management of a 59 year old female patient with chronic right temporomandibular joint pain and localized bony hard swelling over the right pre-auricular region. Patient retained normal range of motion and mouth opening. Computed tomography taken showed a radio-opaque juxta-articular ovoid mass over the right pre-auricular region in close

AU - Augustyn, G. T.. PY - 1986. Y1 - 1986. N2 - Magnetic resonance imaging of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) was performed on two normal volunteer subjects and two symptomatic subjects using a 0.15 T resistive magnet. A spin echo pulse sequence with a TE of 38 ms and a TR of 500 ms was employed. The TMJ meniscus is a low signal structure, and the bilaminar zone behind it is a relatively high signal structure. In normal closed mouths, the demarcation between meniscus and bilaminar zone is located at the vertex position above the mandibular condyle. When the condyle translates, the posterior portion of the meniscus bulges into the joint space. Dislocated meniscus can be identified by a gray mass anterior to the condylar head. The joint space is filled with the higher signal of the bilaminar zone. In ...
This study examined the clinical and radiological effects of intra-articular tenoxicam injection following arthrocentesis and compared them with arthrocentesis alone in patients with disc displacement without reduction (DDwoR). 24 temporomandibular joints (TMJs) in 21 patients with DDwoR were studied. Patients were divided randomly into Group A in which only arthrocentesis was performed (14 TMJs in 14 patients) and Group AT which received arthrocentesis plus intra-articular injection of tenoxicam (10 TMJs in 7 patients). Patients were evaluated before the procedure, on postoperative day 7, then 2, 3, 4 weeks, and 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 months postoperatively. Intensity of joint pain was assessed using a visual analog scale. Maximum mouth opening was recorded at each follow-up. TMJ sounds and palpation scores were noted as positive or negative. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed before and 6 months after treatment in both groups. Disc form, disc location during neutral position, reduction with ...

Orofacial pain associated with osteoarthritis (OA) in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a significant clinical problem [1]. The pathophysiologic and cellular mediators that underlie the development of such chronic orofacial pain are not well understood, nor has a relationship to mechanical loading been defined. Several experimental models have been developed to examine causative factors in TMJ OA progression and joint pathology. Such models often involve intra-articular injections or surgical manipulation of tissue structures in order to alter joint kinematics and stability [2-6]. For example, severing of the discal attachments followed by anterior displacement of the disc has been employed in a rabbit model, while disc perforation and scraping of the condylar surface have been used in sheep models to induce OA symptoms [2,3]. A limitation of the above approaches is that they introduce artificial damage to the joint structures and do not approximate the clinical disorder of ...
In spite of the practical importance of having a detailed knowledge of knee joint innervation to understand the pathophysiologic aspects, little information is now available concerning the density and pattern of the nerve fibres which are distributed to it. The present study has been designed to investigate the density and distribution of nerve fibres and receptor corpuscles in the knee joint articular capsule, cruciate and collateral ligaments in the rat, using the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) histochemical in toto staining technique. The investigation was performed on male Wistar rats of 3 months of age, some of which had been treated with capsaicin to deplete their afferent C fibres of their content of neuropeptides. AChE-positive nerve fibres and different types of receptor corpuscle endings were found within articular capsule and ligaments. The highest density of AChE-positive nerve fibres was noticeable in the fibular collateral ligament followed by the tibial collateral ligament, the ...

Background: Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disorder that increases bone fragility and risk of fractures. Current medications for treating osteoporosis are associated with osteonecrosis due to their anti-angiogenic effect that leads to ischaemic and necrotic changes.Aim: The present research compared two new approaches in treating glucocorticoids induced osteoporosis in temporomandibular joints (TMJs) of albino rats; Microvesicles (MVs) and Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).Materials and Methods: 39 adult female albino rats were divided into 3 groups. All rats were intraperitoneally injected once daily throughout the experimental period (60 days); 13 rats with 9% saline and 26 rats with dexamethasone (200μg/100 g body weight). After 30 days; the first group (control group) received a local injection of 1 ml PBS in TMJs of both sides. Half the dexamethasone injected rats were locally injected in the right side TMJs with 1x107/ml/week MVs (Microvesicles group). The remaining rats (Stem cells group)

e-mail: [email protected] Physiological aspects of the masticatory function. In the undisturbed masticatory system, the teeth are in neutral occlusion with each other (Figure 1). That is why, the most important is the natural contact of the cusps and fissures of the antagonist teeth, in order that all the eccentric movements wont bring any disturbance (Figure 2). The temporo-mandibular joints are in statics but also in dynamics of the same growth-related geometry, in order to have the temporo-mandibular joints as distal pairs of occlusion.. When loaded during chewing, the involved teeth will be depending on the consistency of the alimentary bolus to be crushed, and they will be deflected spatially within their physiological mobility (Figure 3). This requires the elastic and damping properties of the periodontal apparatus. In this area there are nerve endings, on which on which are generally mechano-receptors (Figure 4).. The capture caused by the respective bolus changes the position ...
Who would think that the back or the head hurts can be caused of dental problems. If the bite condition is successfully corrected, this pain can be overcome.. What are these dental problems that can also have such consequences? A tooth that is growing too high, fillings that are too flat, crowns, bridges or an improper tooth replacement disturb the precise system of teeth, temporomandibular joint and muscles. Strong forces act on the teeth, crowns, bridges during chewing. If these forces are not properly distributed, pain can occur.. There is a three-dimensional simulation model, the articulator, with which one can mimic the chewing movements. After the model and the measurements, the doctors can create a reconstruction procedure.. The most modern technology and materials in the Hungarian dental clinics make it possible to overcome even such problems. If you are interested, inquire by phone or by e-mail.. How can you tell that your jaw needs to be treated. Consider whether the following symptoms ...

Abstract: Patients with severe craniofacial abnormalities often require multiple and complex surgical procedures to reconstruct maldeveloped hard and soft tissues of the maxillofacial complex. An important advance in reconstructive surgery is mandibular lengthening by gradual distraction, which takes advantage to be less agressive surgery than some osteotomies. With this technique, a bicortical osteotomy is made at the angle of the deficient mandible, and an expansion appliance is placed across the osteotomy line. Although the applied forces have been shown to lengthen the mandible effectively in the region of the application, their effects on the proximal and distal mandibular segments, including the temporomandibular joint region, have not been analyzed systematically. In this article, we study several experimental and clinical papers ...
The aim of the paper is a stress-strain analysis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with subtotal replacement. The temporomandibular joint is a complex, sensitive and highly mobile joint which works bilaterally so each side influences the contralateral joint and because of this the distribution of the stresses is changed in the healthy joint as well. Detailed knowledge about function these are necessary for clinical application of temporomandibular joint prosthesis and also help us estimate the lifetime of the prosthesis a possibilities of alteration in the contra lateral joint components. The mathematical model of TMJ with replacement is based on the theory of semi-coercive unilateral contact problems in linear elasticity. The numerical solution is based on finite element approximation. The obtained numerical results will be discussed ...

TMJ syndrome: Disorder of the temporo-mandibular joint(s) causing pain usually in front of the ear(s). TMJ Dislocation: Excessive contraction of the lateral pterygoids may cause the jaw to dislocate anteriorly (pass anterior to the anterior tubercles. This could happen during yawning or when taking a large bite. Also sideway blows to the chin when the mouth is open dislocates the TMJ on the side that receives the blow. TMJ dislocation is frequently accompanied by fracture of the mandible. Posterior dislocation of the TMJ is uncommon due to the resistence by the postglenoid tubercle and the strong intrinsic lateral or temporomandibular ligament. Care must be taken during repair in regards to the facial and the auriculotemporal nerve; injury to the auriculotemporal nerve leads to laxity and instability of the TMJ ...

The purpose of the present study is to analyze the movements of the articular disk of the mandibular condyle of rabbits during fictive mastication induced by repetitive electrical stimulation of the masticatory cortical area (CMA). Stimulation of the lateral portion of the CMA is well known to induce grind type of rhythmical jaw movements on the side contralateral to the cortex stimulated. It would be possible to compare the movements of the disk on the working and balancing sides by means of video imaging of the disk, when we stimulated the CMAs on both sides. To take video images of the disk, the zygomatic process of squamous part of the temporal bone, which makes the roof of upper articular cavity, was removed in anesthetized rabbits. The movements of the disk were recorded with high-speed video camera (120 images/sec ) in lateral view. One masticatory cycle was divided into 9 stages on the bases of the incisor movements and the EMG activities of the masseter. The movements of the disk in a ...
In the course of the average week at my clinic, I see at least five people complaining of TMJ pain.. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint. This is the spot that your jaw bone meets with your skull just underneath your ears.. The complaints will range from acute to chronic. Some patients will just wake up with pain or immobility of their jaw, or it will be an accumulative response over many weeks or months.. The TMJ is an unusual joint. It is not the ball and socket type of joint that we think of. Rather, it is a joint that glides having an unusual range of motion. When one studies the anatomy of the jaw, it becomes apparent that there is a very intimate relationship between the muscles of the jaw and the first three vertebra, or bones of the neck. If there is an aberration within the first three vertebra of the neck this will, in turn, have a direct effect on the temporomandibular joint and its subsequent range of movement. Patients will often complain of unusual movement or a lack thereof, ...

Introduction: Mandibular prognathism is one of the most common skeletal disorders in Iranian population and so mandibular setback surgery is one of the most common surgeries in Oral & Maxilllofacial area. Ramus Sagittal Osteotomy is one of the surgeries which is done for the purpose of mandibular setback or advancement. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the progress of maximum mouth opening (MMO) after bilateral sagittal split osteotomy (BSSO) surgery in patients with mandibular prognathism. Materials & Methods: In this study, 36 patients undergone BSSO surgery with Hunsck technique in order to correct mandibular prognathism, were taken into consideration. In all patients, fixation was done with three titanium screw in each side. Maximum mouth opening was measured before surgery and within 1, 3, 6 months after surgery. Repeated measurement was performed for data analysis (a=0.05). Results: In the patients 81.32 of maximum mouth opening was gained after one mouth, 92.1 after ...
The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research of the National Institutes of Health indicates that 10.8 million people in the United States suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems at any given time. While both men and women experience Temporomandibular joint problems, 90% of those seeking treatment are women in their childbearing years.. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) are one of the many causes of headache, facial pain, neck pain, and related symptoms. The Temporomandibular joint differs from any other joints in the body in that it has a hinge action similar to the movements of the knees, and a sliding action similar to movements of the wrists.. To locate the Temporomandibular joint, place your fingers on each side of your face, just in front of your ears and gently open and close your mouth. Upon opening the mouth, the rounded end of bone at the top of the lower jaw, known as the condyle, will glide along a groove in the bone on the temple area (known as the ...

Though the significance of condyle-fossa relationship in the temporomandibular joint has not yet been clarified and normal condyle position not yet defined, efforts have been made to guide the mandibular condyle into a centric position in the glenoid fossa with the aim of relieving the symptoms in patients with orofacial pain and temporomandibular joint internal derangement. The present study investigated the mandibular condyle position in 34 joints in asymptomatic volunteers with normal disk position as verified by arthrography and compared it with the mandibular condyle position in 85 joints in patients with different stages of internal derangement. The results showed that in the volunteers with normal joints including normal superior disk position, the condyles were almost randomly distributed in anterior, centric, and posterior positions in the glenoid fossa. Of the joints with anterior disk displacement approximately half of the number of joints with reducing disks and two thirds of the joints with
This series of medical illustrations compares the normal anatomy of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with temporomandibular joint derangement. The anatomical drawing of right TMJ derangement features anterior dislocation of the articular disc with early degenerative changes of the condylar head. The image of the figure depicts pain from TMJ derangement radiating down the neck and shoulders. Labels include mandibular fossa, articular eminence, lateral pterygoid muscles and condylar process of mandible.
One of the most common symptoms of the TMJ related disorders is a clicking sound when opening or closing the mouth, usually accompanied by pain. This sound can sometimes be loud and is caused by shifting of the disc inside the joint. The disk is small and fibrous and acts as a cushion and shock absorber between the ball and the socket. The temporomandibular joint connects the mandible (or the lower jaw) to the temporal bone, which is at the side of the head. The flexibility of these 2 joints allows the jaw to move up and down and side to side, which plays an important role in chewing and speaking. The joint can be easily located by placing fingers just in front of the ears and then opening the mouth. Although the temporomandibular joint is a ball and socket joint, because of its complex movement and unique anatomy it is one of the most complicated joints in the body. TMJ disorders are a group of conditions of the jaw joint and chewing muscles with pain being the most common symptom.. ...
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are located in front of the ears. If you use your fingers to lightly press the recess in that place and open and close your mouth, you will feel the temporomandibular joint move. Muscle pain and joint disorders are the common causes of temporomandibular joint and muscle disorder (TMD). In the case of muscle pain, it may be related to parafunctions such as gum chewing, eating hard foods, clenching and tooth grinding at night. For joint disorders, it may be related to disc displacement and inflammation. There is a cartilaginous disc between the jaw bone and temporal bone of the TMJ. If the disc becomes displaced, one may experience clicking or popping sounds during jaw function, and may contribute to pain in the TMJ or limited mouth opening. The pain may also spread to the head, face, or teeth etc.. According to the 2018 National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the prevalence of TMD is between 5% and 12%. Temporomandibular disorders are at least ...

Samples of discs and disc attachments were extracted by dissociative methods and the resultant collagenous residues cleaved with cyanogen bromide. Soluble peptides thus released were characterized by their electrophoretic mobility following SDS-PAGE and by Western blot staining with specific antibodies against type I and type III collagens. Type III collagen was identified in samples taken from the posterior discal attachments. This may explain why this disc is prone to detachment and internal derangement and the high incidence of patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
Introduction: It has been suggested that certain features of occlusion that lay outside what is considered normal have the potential to affect risk for temporomandibular joint disorders and incisor stability. This concept is highly controversial within the dental literature and previous research findings on associations are inconsistent. Objectives: The research objectives were to a) investigate the association of commonly cited occlusal features during adolescence and temporomandibular joint clicking at age 45, and b) explore the changes that occur to the incisor relationship from adolescence to age 45. Materials and Methods: The sample used were members of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study (DMHDS), a longitudinal birth cohort study investigation of 1,037 children (48.4% female) born at Queen Mary Hospital, Dunedin, New Zealand between 1 April 1972 and 31 March 1973. For a) associations between specific putative occlusal risk factors (posterior cross-bite, overbite ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The development of strains, forces and nociceptor activity in retrodiscal tissues of the temporomandibular joint of male and female goats. AU - Loughner, B.. AU - Miller, J.. AU - Broumand, V.. AU - Cooper, B.. PY - 1997/3/6. Y1 - 1997/3/6. N2 - Chronic pain in the temporomandibular (TM) joint is predominantly manifested in women. We examined biomechanical and neural factors that could contribute to this differential representation. Relationships between jaw rotation, soft tissue strains and soft tissue forces were examined in the goat TM joint. Strains were minimal until the jaw was rotated beyond the normal range of motion (7.25 deg). There were no significant differences in rotation-strain patterns in males and females. Stress developed as strains were introduced by jaw rotation. Gender differences were observed. Males manifested higher failure loads (15.94 ± 1.98 and 11.37 ± 2.02 N, for males and females respectively) and higher elastic stiffness than females (5.62 ± 1.19 ...

Temporomandibular joint disorder-also called TMJ or TMD-describes a group of conditions that affect the muscles in your jaw. The temporomandibular
TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint, and is the area where the bones of the jaw connect with the skull. Our Melbourne dental clinic can help with TMJ disorders & TMD, or temporomandibular dysfunction.
Pain in the jaw and noticeable limitations in jaw movements can be a sign of any of the Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ or TMD). As with other joints in the body, TMJ is also affected by injury and conditions such as arthritis. One or both joints may be affected in people with TMD, which can affect a persons ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.. Clenching or grinding your teeth, tightening your jaw muscles and stressing your TM joint can lead to TMJ disorders. It can also be a result of having a damaged jaw joint due to an injury or disease. Whatever the cause, the results may include a misaligned bite, pain, clicking, or grating noises when you open your mouth, or experience difficulty in opening your mouth wide.. More than 90% of TMD is muscle problems which can cause headaches and other types of pain in the jaw area. The reason for this muscle problem comes from the biting action or problems with the movement of the lower jaw.. We use a ...
Discoidin domain receptor 1 (DDR-1)-deficient mice exhibited a high incidence of osteoarthritis (OA) in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) as early as 9 weeks of age. They showed typical histological signs of OA, including surface fissures, loss of proteoglycans, chondrocyte cluster formation, collagen type I upregulation, and atypical collagen fibril arrangements. Chondrocytes isolated from the TMJs of DDR-1-deficient mice maintained their osteoarthritic characteristics when placed in culture. They expressed high levels of runx-2 and collagen type I, as well as low levels of sox-9 and aggrecan. The expression of DDR-2, a key factor in OA, was increased. DDR-1-deficient chondrocytes from the TMJ were positively influenced towards chondrogenesis by a three-dimensional matrix combined with a runx-2 knockdown or stimulation with extracellular matrix components, such as nidogen-2. Therefore, the DDR-1 knock-out mouse can serve as a novel model for temporomandibular disorders, such as OA of the TMJ, and will
Traditional systems of healing, such as shamanism, do not readily lend themselves to conventional research methods, yet studying their effectiveness is especially germane in the case of chronic conditions that involve an emotional component and that elude allopathic treatment regimens. Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMDs), which affect up to 10% of the adult population, are a prime example of such conditions. Traditional treatment outcomes for TMD pain are often unsatisfactory. Moreover, in women age 25-55 (the age-sex group most affected), TMD is often found in association with depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal symptoms, frequent infection,and fibromyalgia. Because these multiple and complex symptoms suggest a loss of spirit or life energy, they may be particularly susceptible to treatment by shamanic (spiritual) healing, which aims to bring disturbed physical, mental, and emotional systems into balance. This phase I study will develop methods to evaluate shamanic ...

Adverse effects and temporomandibular joint disorder associated with Khat chewing: a prospective study, Waleed Saeed Bakhadher, Saeed Bajafar, Dhfer Alshayban, Ibrahim Sales, Yaser
Preauricular swelling followed by limited mouth opening can be a challenging diagnosis. All anatomical structures and related pathologies should be examined. A 41-year-old woman presented to the Emergency Room complaining of limited mouth opening, severe pain that was worse on chewing, and swelling over her right temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that had started 3 days previously. Physical examination revealed localized swelling and redness over her right TMJ. Her right masticatory muscles were very painful and tender on palpation. Mouth opening was slightly limited. A computed tomography (CT) scan demonstrated a collection adjacent to her right TMJ, and reactive arthritis was diagnosed. Aspiration and arthrocentesis were performed, leading to immediate improvement. When symptoms returned 6 months later, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a cystic lesion adjacent to the TMJ. Under general anesthesia an excisional biopsy was performed, and the pathologic examination revealed fibrous ...
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. These disorders are often incorrectly called TMD, which stands for temporomandibular joint.. What Is the Temporomandibular Joint (TMD)?. The temporomandibular joint (TMD) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull, which is immediately in front of the ear on each side of your head. The joints are flexible, allowing the jaw to move smoothly up and down and side to side and enabling you to talk, chew, and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control the position and movement of the jaw.. What Causes TMD?. The cause of TMD is not always clear, but dentists believe that symptoms arise from problems with the muscles of the jaw or with the parts of the joint itself.. Injury to the jaw, temporomandibular joint, or muscles of the head and neck - such as from a heavy blow or ...

This series of medical illustrations depicts the anterior displacement of the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, from the LEFT side. Two illustrations of a lateral (side) view of the skull show the mandible (jaw) open and closed, revealing the displacement of the TMJ meniscus. To the right are two enlarged drawings of the dysfunctional TMJ showing the area in more detail. Labeled structures include the pterygoid muscle, mandible, temporal bone, meniscus, condyle and joint capsule.
Arthritis involving the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) complicates 40 - 96% of cases of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), potentially leading to devastating changes to form and function.

TY - JOUR. T1 - The Spectral Properties of Temporomandibular Joint Sounds. AU - Gay, T.. AU - Bertolami, C. N.. PY - 1987/6. Y1 - 1987/6. N2 - Spectral analyses were performed on sounds recorded from TMJs that had previously been classified into different intracapsular categories, in an attempt to determine whether the inherent properties of these sounds were unique for each different disorder. A total of 55 joints was studied: 32 were diagnosed as displaced disc with reduction [DDR], 10 were diagnosed as displaced disc without reduction [DDN], and 13 were diagnosed as degenerative joint disease [DJD]. The spectral analysis for each recorded joint sound was performed using a Fast Fourier transform routine, the results of which were plotted as a frequency vs. amplitude envelope. These analyses showed that different intracapsular TMJ disorders were characterized by sounds whose energy distribution patterns, while showing certain across-group differences, usually shared significant common spectral ...

Chondromas are benign tumours composed of mature hyaline cartilage. We present here the first case in the English language medical literature of juxtaarticular chondroma of the temporomandibular joint in the parotid region. Within the rarity of cartilage disorders of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), this particular condition is a diagnostic curiosity. The patient, a 54 year old woman, presented a right preauricular tumour of 3.5 cm. which had been developing for 4 years. It was not painful but there was a recent symptomology of TMJ dysfunction, with pain and clicks. The diagnostic possibilities of a parotid pleomorphic adenoma and of a cartilage tumour of the TMJ suggested a difficult preoperative differential diagnosis, which influenced our approach regarding therapy. The tumour was excised, preserving the parotid gland. This enabled us to confirm the histological diagnosis of chondroma, composed solely of chondroide tissue. We have described the clinical characteristics of our case, and ...

Total temporomandibular joint (TMJ) prosthesis is an effective and reliable method of joint reconstruction. However, there is still an urgent need to design a new TMJ prosthesis because of no commercially available TMJ prosthesis appropriate for the clinical application on the Chinese population. This study was introduced to prospectively confirm the safety and effectiveness of a new TMJ prosthesis with customized design and 3D printing additive fabrication in clinical application. Patients with unilateral end-stage TMJ osteoarthrosis were recruited in this study from Nov 2016 to Mar 2017. Computed tomography scans for all patients were obtained and transformed into three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction models. The customized TMJ prosthesis consisted of three components including the fossa, condylar head, and mandibular handle units, which were designed based on the anatomy of the TMJ and were fabricated using the 3D printing technology. The prominent characters of the prosthesis were the customized

How often during the day do you open your mouth, chew, laugh or talk? Your masticatory (chewing) system has three main parts: the teeth, the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and the jaw muscles. Since problems with the TMJs and the jaw muscles often strike at the same time, they are called Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD).
