It is important to document any evidence of temporomandibular joint (I'M)) dysfunction prior to treatment, and inform the patient that the condition exists. Asymptomatic clicking is generally not treated prior to orthodontics, but monitored as treatment proceeds. If muscular imbalances and or pain exist, and centric relation cannot be accurately recorded, then a phase of splint therapy and physical therapy is indicated prior to orthodontics. After the patient has been stabilized, orthodontic treatment can be commenced.

In this dissection, the masseter muscle (MM) was stripped from its origin along the undersurface of the zygomatic arch (ZA). The facial nerve is retracted inferiorly and anteriorly. Note the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) capsule, which has not been entered. The temporalis muscle (TM) is still attached to the coronoid process (CP) and the medial surface of the mandible.

The teeth play an important part at different stages of oral processing. The first bite with the incisors is the part of the eating process which has been best emulated by texture measuring devices since it is closest in action to that of a unidirectional single deformation test in a universal test machine. The main chewing stage or mastication involves jaw movement and action of the teeth to break down foods. In some stages ofjaw movement, such as moving the food into the mouth and manipulation to the molars, the teeth may not reach occlusion. Speeds are variable over a large range, but the teeth may move vertically and horizontally or with a myriad of combinations leading to compressive, tensile and shear forces. Food is bitten often at the extremes rapidly with low forces or slowly with high force. The lower jaw is attached to the head by the temporomandibular joint which enables a wide range of movements. Depression (mouth opening), elevation (mouth closing), protrusion (jaw...
In children who have received high doses of radiation to the developing facial bones and soft tissues, the use of screening to identify craniofacial abnormalities and problems with jaw movement is important for early detection and management. Trismus, crepitus, limited mandibular movement and abnormal growth associated with the temporomandibular joint may be present 37 .
Sleep bruxism is manifested by repetitive rhythmic chewing movements leading to grinding or crunching of the teeth and an increase in production of saliva. It varies in severity, but there are often hundreds of episodes each night. They usually occur at a frequency of around 1 Hz and in runs of 5-10. The noise is usually felt to be unpleasant and the movements cause grinding down of the teeth, dental decay, periodontal damage, increased tooth mobility and temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction, with pain which is usually worst on waking.
Preliminary data collected to date suggests there may be at least one additional difference between at least some trigeminal nerves and spinal nerves with respect to the response to persistent inflammation. That is, there is evidence that inflammation of either the masseter muscle or the temporomandibular joint results in an increase in excitability that is associated with either no detectable change in sodium currents 129 or a decrease in sodium currents 130 . These data are in stark contrast to the results of inflammation of the rat hindpaw 15 , the ileum 10 and the stomach 14 , where there is at least an increase in TTX-R INa, and often an increase in TTX-S INa 15 . These differences may simply reflect target of innervation, rather than ganglia of origin, but should be pursued in the future.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome refers to recurrent pain in the region of the jaw, ear, occiput, and supraorbital regions, which is believed to result from degeneration or malocclusion of the TMJ. Erosion of the bony surfaces within the glenoid fossa may cause irritation of several adjacent nerves including the auriculotemporal and chorda tympani trigeminal nerves. Patients may report an increase in pain in the evening and pain referred to the oropharynx. Rarely, a
Figure 6-15 Incision made through the superficial layer of the temporalis fascia. Incision begins at the root of the zygomatic arch (above the temporomandibular joint) upward and forward to join the incision made across the forehead in periosteum. One method to approach the posterior portion of the lateral orbital rim and superior surface of the zygomatic arch is also demonstrated. Dissection with incisors is continued deep to the superficial layer of temporalis fascia (see inset), within the superficial temporal fat pad, until bone is encountered. Sharp incision is then made through the periosteum on the superior surface of the zygomatic arch and the posterior surface of the zygoma.

Clinical manifestations of radiation include hypoplasia, deformities, fracture and necrosis. The craniofacial development of children is affected, resulting in reduced temporomandibular joint mobility, growth retardation and osteoradionecrosis 10 . Impaired growth of the mandible and facial bones can contribute to malocclusion. Chemotherapy may also affect the growing skeleton, although with limited long-term consequences. In the immature rat, the growth plate becomes thicker with methotrexate and thinner with doxorubicin. These agents do not appear to have a major effect on the ultimate height of treated children. Varying degrees of facial asymmetry, including hemifacial microsomia and other craniofacial abnormalities, may necessitate interventions, including bimaxillary osteotomies and reconstruction with prostheses. The clinical effects of chemotherapy and radiation on dental and craniofacial development will be discussed later in this chapter. Radiation has been associated with...
The mandible can be exposed by surgical approaches using incisions placed on the skin of the face. The position of the incision and anatomy vary according to the region of the mandible approached. Because there are almost no anatomic hazards to transfacial exposure of the mandibular symphysis, this approach is not presented. The focus of this section is on the submandibular, retromandibular, and rhytidectomy approaches. All are used to expose the posterior regions of the mandible and all must negotiate important anatomic structures. Approaches to the temporomandibular joint are presented in Section VI.
The sharp end of a periosteal elevator is draw along the length of the incision to begin stripping the tissues from the posterior border of the ramus. The masseter is stripped from the lateral surface of the mandible using periosteal elevators. Clean dissection is facilitated by stripping the muscle from top to bottom (Fig 10-9). Keeping the elevator in intimate contact with the bone reduces shredding and bleeding of the masseter. The entire lateral surface of the mandibular ramus to the level of the temporomandibular joint capsule as well as the coronoid process can be exposed. Retraction of the masseter muscle is facilitated by inserting a suitable retractor into the sigmoid notch (channel retractor, sigmoid notch retractor)(Figs. 10-10 to 10-12).
The skin is marked before injection of a vasoconstrictor. The incision begins approximately 1,5 to 2 cm superior to the zygomatic arch just posterior to the anterior extent of the hairline (Fig. 11-2). The incision then curves posteriorly and inferiorly, blending into a preauricular incision in the natural crease anterior to the pinna (same position as in the preauricular approach to the temporomandibular joint, see Chap. 12). The incision continues under the lobe of the ear and approximately 3 mm onto the posterior surface of the auricle intead of in the mastoid-ear skin crease. This modification prevents a noticeable scar that occurs during contractive healing of the flap, pulling the scar into the neck. Instead, the incision is well hidden by the ear, it curves posteriorly toward the hairline and then runs along the hairline, or just inside it, for a few centimeters.
The second factor considered in designing the location of the incision is the amount of inferior access required for the procedure. When exposure of the zygomatic arch is unnecessary, extension of the coronal incision inferiorly to the level of the helix may be all that is necessary. The coronal incision can extended inferiorly, however, to the level of the lobe of the ear as a preauricular incision. This maneuver allows exposure of the zygomatic arch, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and or infraorbital rims.

Input or typical proprioceptive input 39 . These features alone require that the afferents innervating this structure possess unique properties 40 . In addition to the structures underlying the special senses, specialized structures such as the teeth and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) are also innervated by TG neurons. Teeth are the only structure in the body that are replaced in their entirety. And while many details of this process have yet to be worked out, what is clear is that innervation of the deciduous teeth is transient and the transition from innervated deciduous teeth to innervated permanent teeth is seamless. Similarly, the TMJ is the only joint in the body that is bi-articulating. This feature raises the possibility that its innervation will be unique, even if sensory innervation is unilateral.
Both types of device should allow some lateral as well as vertical jaw movement so that the patient can talk and yawn, and to reduce temporomandibular joint problems, but they should prevent any antero-posterior movement of the mandible. They should lead to only minimal (3 mm) vertical opening of the mouth, since this rotates the mandible and narrows the airway. The advancement of the mandible should be approximately 75 of the distance between the natural resting position and the most protruded position possible, as long as this is comfortable. An inability to protrude the mandible more than 0.6 cm makes it unlikely that a mandibular advancement device will be effective. 1 Temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
This may be required for the patient in the form of a helmet, locking the windows and bedroom door, or constructing a stair gate. Localized movement disorders need specific equipment, such as a gum shield for sleep bruxism. Protection for the partner usually takes the form of sleeping in a separate bed or bedroom, if necessary with the door locked.
These seizures occur more frequently in males than in females and usually between the ages of 2 and 12 years. They are the most common simple partial seizures in childhood and represent 25 of childhood epilepsy. Twitching of the face, lips and tongue associated with dysarthria, difficulty in swallowing and drooling are characteristic. There may also be dysarthria after the episodes. Seventy-five per cent of subjects only have these seizures during sleep and in a further 15 they are seen both during sleep and during wakefulness. They occur particularly in stages 1 and 2 NREM sleep. This condition may be confused with bruxism. The prognosis is good.
Psuggest trigeminal neuralgia, and associated oropharyngeal or jaw pain may imply temporomandibular joint disease. It is imperative to identify past or concurrent medical or neurological disorders that may be related etiologically to a patient's complaints of trigeminal dysfunction. Specifically, a history of collagen vascular diseases prior strokes, diabetes, neoplasms, granulomatous diseases, bleeding disorders or recent and recurrent infections may prove helpful.
One of the best ways to manage late effects of the teeth is preventative care. Ideally, all patients should undergo a dental evaluation and treatment of any existing dental problems prior to undergoing treatment for their cancer. Patients who are younger at diagnosis and who have received higher radiation doses will require more watchful attention for future problems. Patients should have dental exams and cleanings every six months, and these should include fluoride applications 17 . For those who develop malocclusion or other structural abnormalities, consultation with an orthodontist who has experience in the management of childhood cancer survivors who have undergone irradiation is preferred. All patients should have at least a baseline Panorex examination prior to dental procedures to evaluate their root development, since root thinning and shortening occur fairly frequently. Symptomatic treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction may be required and involve exercises and...

The F stands for foot, because these responses were first recorded from intrinsic foot muscles. On stimulation of a single motor axon, the wave of depolarization will travel distally to be recorded as part of the CMAP, or M-wave, but also will travel proximally to its anterior horn cell (AHC). Retrograde depolarization of AHCs will result in regeneration of an action potential at the axon hillock in a small subset of neurons ( 5-10 ), which then travels back down the motor axon to the innervated muscle, recorded at the electrodes as the F-wave (Fig. 3). Although, for theoretical reasons, it is desirable to reverse the polarity of the stimulator, placing the anode distally and cathode proximally to avoid anodal block, this remains more of a theoretical rather than a practical consideration. F-waves are easily generated with the cathode in the distal position. At the level of the spinal cord, no synapse is involved, and an F-wave from a single axon has the same morphology and almost...
Lesions located posterior to the carotid artery and that with lateral growth appear to bulge behind the styloid process are in the poststyloid or retrostyloid parapharyn-geal space and are not of parotid origin. These are more likely tumors arising from the neural structures that accompany the carotid artery and are usually nerve sheath tumors or paragangliomas. The parapharyngeal fat deviates anteriorly and laterally away from these tumors. Masticator space lesions arise anterior to the prestyloid PPS and obliterate the fat between the pterygoid muscles pushing the parapharyngeal fat posteriorly and medially. Such lesions can arise from bone, dental structures, nerves (third division, trigeminal nerve), the temporomandibular joint, or other various mesenchymal structures but are not of parotid origin.
Clinical Features and Associated Findings. Cocaine produces a brief rush, which peaks at 1 to 2 minutes. This rush is followed by euphoria, excitability, and hypervigilance. The acute administration of cocaine causes both psychiatric and neurological symptoms. Acute psychiatric symptoms include anxiety, insomnia, paranoia, agitation, and psychosis. Neurological symptoms include stereotypy, bruxism, chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, seizures, lethargy, strokes, and coma. In addition, high doses of cocaine cause tachycardia, tachypnea, and hypertension. Parenteral cocaine users are also at risk for stroke related to infection, such as endocarditis and the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).
