Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is a chronic orofacial pain disorder of unknown cause. It is more common in peri- and postmenopausal women, and sex hormone dysregulation is believed to be an important causative factor. Psychosocial events often trigger or exacerbate symptoms, and persons with BMS appear to be predisposed toward anxiety and depression. Atrophy of small nerve fibers in the tongue epithelium has been reported, and potential neuropathic mechanisms for BMS are now widely investigated. Historically, BMS was thought to comprise endocrinological, psychosocial, and neuropathic components...

BACKGROUND: Excessive daytime sleepiness is frequently reported as a symptom for OSA, leading to problems with concentration, mood and memory. MAD are considered as an effective therapy to control OSA, reducing EDS and improving sleep quality. OBJECTIVES: The present study aimed to investigate the effects of mandibular advance device (MAD) therapy on excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) of patients diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). METHODS: Ten patients from the Sleep Medicine Service of the "Hospital Geral Sanatório" (Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil) were diagnosed with EDS, and a personalized MAD was made for each one of them...

The objective was to test the hypothesis of no difference in facial swelling, pain, trismus and immediate quality of life after surgical removal of mandibular third molars, with or without postoperative cryotherapy. A MEDLINE (PubMed), Embase database and Cochrane library search in combination with a hand search of relevant journals was conducted by including human randomized controlled trials published in English until the 17th of July 2018. The search identified 37 titles. Six studies with low or unclear risk of bias fulfilled the inclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND: The tongue plays an important role during the oropharyngeal phase of swallowing. Each part of the tongue has a different function during swallowing. Ageing causes changes in muscle quantity and quality. Qualitative changes, such as an increase in intramuscular adipose tissue, can be determined by the echo intensity (EI) of the tongue on ultrasonography (US). OBJECTIVE: To clarify the relationship between EI and thickness and function of the tongue. METHODS: Ninety-four healthy elderly individuals (30 male, 64 female) aged >65 years (mean 71...

BACKGROUND: Severe malocclusions may cause functional and esthetic problems and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Studies have investigated association between malocclusions and TMDs and shown controversial findings. OBJECTIVE: Purpose of this investigation was to examine the prevalence of TMD sub-diagnoses, using Diagnostic Criteria for the TMD (DC/TMD), in patients with Class II malocclusion and retrognathic mandible who had undergone mandibular advancement surgery 4-8 years previously, and to compare their frequencies with non-treated patients with a similar preexisting condition...

BACKGROUND: Difficulties and limitations on masticatory function are among the main reasons why patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) seek care. OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the masticatory behavior and perception of chewing difficulties in adults with mild TMD of recent onset, considering the presence of malocclusion. METHODS: 81 young adults were divided into groups according to the presence of TMD and malocclusion: Non TMD Normal Occlusion (n=18), Non TMD Malocclusion (n=22), TMD Normal Occlusion (n=18), and TMD Malocclusion (n=23)...

AIM: To evaluate the frequency of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) pain among adolescents with a history of preterm birth compared to a matched control group. METHODS: A group of 192 preterm-born adolescents was followed up at the age of 17-19 years and compared to matched controls. Self-report questionnaires included screening questions about TMD pain, chronic diseases, general health, depression, anxiety, anger, antisocial behaviour and self-concept. TMD pain was defined as answering "yes" to one or both of the following questions: "Do you have pain in the temple, face, temporomandibular joint or jaws once a week or more?" and "Do you have pain when you open your mouth wide or chew once a week or more often?" Data analysis was performed using chi-square test and logistic regression model with likelihood ratio test...
