Unusual TMD Cases – Unusual Treatment
In this lecture, we will discuss unusual Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) cases and unusual treatments.
We will focus specifically on occlusion and how the relationship of the dental arches interacts with the stability of the Stomatognathic system.
Occlusion is one of the most demanding aspects of dentistry, we all know about the term occlusion confusion.
Although occlusion used to be the main etiological factor for Temporomandibular Disorders and many dental treatments were performed in order to address the pain symptoms, nowadays the literature suggest that the static relationship of the dental arches is rarely the etiological factor for an intracapsular TM joint disorders or a masticatory muscles disorders, In some cases though, were the occlusion compromises the orthopedic stability of the stomatognathic system, once the pain symptoms are treated the dental problem needs to be investigated as a possible etiological factor of the TMD symptoms.
