Researchers identify potential risk factors for TMD

Posted on May 22, 2012 at 12:13 AM
Researchers have identified a list of characteristics they say will eventually help health professionals identify patients who are at risk of developing temporomandibular disorders, according to a report published recently in an issue of the NYSDA news. 

In following a large number of control individuals, as well as people reporting temporomandibular disorder pain, Richard Ohrbach, DDS, PhD, director of the Oral Diagnostic Sciences at the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and a clinical psychologist, and other researchers found that a high rate of variables they  assessed were associated with painful temporomandibular disorders.
Some symptoms of themporomandibular disorders can include:

• Pain in the chewing muscles or jaw joint;
• Pain in the jaw, neck, or face;
• Stiff jaw muscles;
• A jaw that locks or has limited movement;
• Painful clicking, popping, or grating in the jaw joint; and
• Changes in the fit between upper and lower teeth.

Temporomandibular disorders are estimated to affect more than 10 million Americans; women more so than men, according to the national Institutes of Health.
