To evaluate the effectiveness of Michigan-type occlusal splint and anterior repositioning splint in patients with temporomandibular joint anterior disc displacement with reduction.
The effectiveness of physical therapy for treatment of anterior disc displacement without reduction of temporomandibular disorders has not been well defined. This study compared the treatm...
comparing the effects of Laser therapy with anterior re-positioning splint and a placebo group on clinical signs and symptoms of temporo-mandibular dis-function and assessing articular dis...
To evaluate the effectiveness of the stabilizing splint versus the pivot splint as jaw exercise together with stabilizing splints for treatment of TMJ anterior disc displacement without re...
Computer guided arthrocentesis of temporomandibular joint for patients with anterior disc displacement with reduction using patient specific guide
Orthopedic functional appliances are usually used to correct patients with retrognathic mandible. However, a part of cases have a trend of relapse after splint treatment. The aim of this study was to ...
Disc displacement is a common disorder affecting the temporomandibular joint. According to previous publications, the displaced disc can be categorized into pure anterior displacement and rotational d...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of injecting basic fibroblast growth factor following surgical induced anterior disc displacement in temporomandibular joints (TMJ).
Anterior repositioning splint (ARS) can facilitate regenerative condylar remodeling.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the use of the arthrocentesis in patients with disc displacement without reduction (DDWOR). Two hundred and thirty-four (234) patients with DDWOR ...
A plate of fibrous tissue that divides the temporomandibular joint into an upper and lower cavity. The disc is attached to the articular capsule and moves forward with the condyle in free opening and protrusion. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p92)
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)
A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.

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.
