The role of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) was recently investigated in Temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Several authors argue that in subjects with TMD there is a dysregulation of ANS. Recent literature support that Pupillometry is a simple non-invasive tool to study ANS. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between TMD and ANS(More)

The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of a single 60 min TENS application on sEMG and kinesiographic activity in TMD patients in remission, and to assess the sEMG and kinesiographic effect of TENS in placebo and untreated groups. Sixty female subjects, selected according to the inclusion/exclusion criteria, suffering from unilateral TMD in(More)
INTRODUCTION Few in vivo studies have investigated the effect of maxillary expansion on strabismus; however, some in vitro studies hypothesized that changes in the palatal width obtained with rapid maxillary expansion appliances could involve other bone structures that contain blood vessels and nerves conveying to the orbital cavity. The present case report(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present controlled clinical trial was to assess the effect of a single 60 min application of transcutaneous electrical nervous stimulation (TENS) at sensory stimulation threshold (STS), compared to the application of motor stimulation threshold (MTS) as well as to untreatment, on the surface electromyographic (sEMG) and(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have suggested controversial results regarding a possible association between pre-eclampsia (PE) and periodontal disease (PD) and no meta-analysis has been performed to clarify this issue. METHODS A literature search of electronic databases was performed for articles published through March 24, 2013, followed by a manual search of(More)
