Summary of "Screening for temporomandibular disorders : A sensible approach?"

Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are typically characterized by pain in the masticatory muscles and temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and by limitation of mandibular mobility. In June 2019, the German Society of Craniomandibular Function and Disorders presented a screening tool to identify individuals with TMDs. The assessment tool consists of patient history (three questions related to jaw pain, one question related to impaired mandibular mobility) and a clinical examination (palpation of masticatory muscles and TMJs; evaluation of maximum jaw opening; assessment of the presence of occlusal disturbances; documentation of TMJ noises).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diseases or disorders of the muscles of the head and neck, with special reference to the masticatory muscles. The most notable examples are TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS and TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.

A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)

Training or retraining of the buccal, facial, labial, and lingual musculature in toothless conditions; DEGLUTITION DISORDERS; TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS; MALOCCLUSION; and ARTICULATION DISORDERS.

An integrated professional approach to screening, evaluation, control, and reduction of abnormal WEIGHT GAIN.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
