*  Radiation-induced temporo-mandibular joint disorder in post-radiotherapy nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients : assessment and...
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is endemic in southern China, and its incidence in Hong Kong is relatively high. Radiotherapy is the mainstay treatment for NPC due to its relatively high radiosensitivity and deep-seated anatomical position, which is not readily accessible by surgery. Although the technique of radiotherapy in NPC has been advancing and offers promising treatment outcome, complications around the irradiation areas are inevitable and the quality of life of the post-radiotherapy patients is often compromised. Trismus, which is defined as the restricted mouth opening or jaw movement due to the disorder of temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), is one of the possible late complications for radiotherapy of NPC and is found in 5-17% of the post-radiotherapy (post-RT) patients. Trismus at early stage may only affect the speech, but in severe cases nutritional intake and oral hygiene condition may deteriorate seriously. This article reviewed the possible causes of radiation-induced TMJ ...

*  TMD FAQs - British Society for Occlusal Studies
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 TMJ's 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 ...

*  A Rat Model of Osteoarthritic Temporomandibular Joint Pain: Mechanically-Induced Behavioral Hypersensitivity and Histologic...
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 ...

*  Intrinsic innervation of the rat knee joint articular capsule and ligaments. | Pubblicazioni Scientifiche Unicam
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 ...

In the early stages, inflammation of the TMJs may resemble 'TMJ syndrome'. This is a relatively common condition caused by spasm of the chewing muscles. TMJ syndrome is linked with stress, clenching and grinding the teeth or an incorrect bite. TMJ syndrome can also be caused by the habit of holding a telephone receiver between your shoulder and cheek. In more advanced cases, psoriatic arthritis affecting the TMJs will produce changes that show up on x-rays.. What medical professional do I see for advice and treatment? ...

Once it is determined that a bad bite is causing your TMD or other problems with your teeth or jaw joints, a number of procedures can be used to stabilize your bite and allow chewing muscles to stay in their comfortable, relaxed position. You may need to wear a custom-crafted bite splint, called an orthotic, for a period of time to relax the muscles, restore balance to the jaw joints and stabilize the bite. These are small, removable and very comfortable since they are created specifically for the patient's mouth ...

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 ...

Other Pertinent Research. Ireland VE: The Problem of 'The Clicking Jaw.' Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine 1951;44:363-372. ABSTRACT: It is not many years since the treatment of lesions of the temporomandibular joint was regarded as the exclusive province of general and orthopaedic surgeons. A growing appreciation in recent years of the importance of dental factors in the etiology of many of these conditions is at least resulting in the direction of these cases to the dental surgeons. In many of the American publications on this subject the emphasis has been on the auditory symptoms which are believed to result from lesions of the temporomandibular joint. In my experiences cases in which there are auditory symptoms are rare. The only cases encountered so far have been undoubted examples of otosclerosis. The purpose of this paper is to consider more closely the symptoms which definitely accompany disorders of the ...

*  Anatomy Tables - Infratemporal Fossa & Oral Cavity
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 ...

*  Malocclusion: Ethics, Myths and Reality - WSAVA2008 - VIN
Of course it does. The list of tolerated problems in pedigree dogs which will be reproduced should be revised and updated.. Truths. 1. The evaluation of occlusion contains several important criteria that include shape and symmetry of the skull, the function of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), and finally position and number of the teeth.. 2. The tongue pushes teeth forward as the upper lip pushes them backward. 'Dental interlock' controls this phenomenon. 3. Complete dentition in dogs consists of 42 teeth. Acceptance of missing dentition leads to having this problem established in the population. 4. The cause of persistent deciduous teeth may be their malposition as well as malocclusion of permanent teeth during eruption.. 5. Until the somatic development of the animal is completed changes in occlusion may be observed. The final reliable evaluation of occlusion is performed at an appropriate age (usually 9-10 months in small, 10-12 months in medium, and 12-14 months in large breeds).. 6. ...

*  Full Mouth Restoration
Pain during chewing, yawning or laughing may indicate problems of the musculature and temporo-mandibular joint (the joint between the lower jaw and the skull). If severe problem in these areas exists, you may need to see an oral surgeon.. Orthodontic treatment (concerned with movement of teeth) could help bring the teeth into a proper occlusal relationship, and may have to be involved in full mouth restoration.. The evolving trend of dental tourism encourages patients to travel for cheaper procedures and get treated in the best possible manner. Full mouth restoration is an expensive desire to fulfill for many but due to the emergence of modern dental clinics offering costly procedures like Straumann teeth implants and Zimmer teeth implants in Thailand, Mexico or India at a price unheard of in developed nations like the US or the UK, patients are encouraged to cover huge distances to get that happy curve on their faces.. ...
