Experimental occlusal interference induces long-term masticatory muscle hyperalgesia in rats
ABSTRACT Temporomandibular joint or related masticatory muscle pain represents the most common chronic orofacial pain condition. Patients frequently report this kind of pain after dental alterationsExpand
Central sensitization and MAPKs are involved in occlusal interference-induced facial pain in rats.
UNLABELLED We previously developed a rat dental occlusal interference model of facial pain that was produced by bonding a crown onto the right maxillary first molar and was reflected in sustainedExpand
Ethnic differences in oro-facial somatosensory profiles-quantitative sensory testing in Chinese and Danes.
Ethnic differences in pain experiences have been widely assessed in various pathological and experimental conditions. However, limited sensory modalities have been described in previous research, andExpand
Rehabilitation of oral function with removable dentures--still an option?
Tooth loss is a chronic disability, which makes it difficult for patients to perform essential tasks such as eating, communicating with others and socialising. Numerous studies have revealed andExpand
The difficult relationship between occlusal interferences and temporomandibular disorder - insights from animal and human experimental studies.
The aetiology of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is multifactorial, and numerous studies have addressed that occlusion may be of great importance. However, whether occlusion plays a crucial role inExpand
ACC Plasticity Maintains Masseter Hyperalgesia Caused by Occlusal Interference
Acute occlusal interference following improper occlusal alteration in dental practice can induce chronic masticatory muscle pain. The underlying mechanism has not been clarified. Synaptic plasticityExpand
Inflammatory pain memory facilitates occlusal interference‐induced masticatory muscle hyperalgesia in rats
Patients with an orofacial pain history appear to be more susceptible to occlusal interference pain in dental practice for unknown reasons. Pain memory has a critical function in subsequent painExpand
A study on variability of quantitative sensory testing in healthy participants and painful temporomandibular disorder patients
Abstract Objectives: Quantitative sensory testing has mainly used thresholds to evaluate somatosensory sensitivity so far. The variability of different measures from session to session has also beenExpand
Role of TRPV1 and ASIC3 channels in experimental occlusal interference‐induced hyperalgesia in rat masseter muscle
Masticatory muscle pain may occur following immediate occlusal alteration by dental treatment. The underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Transient receptor potential vanilloid‐1 (TRPV1) andExpand
Somatosensory abnormalities in Chinese patients with painful temporomandibular disorders
BackgroundThe somatosensory phenotype of Chinese temporomandibular disorders (TMD) patients is not sufficiently studied with the use of contemporary techniques and guidelines.MethodsA standardizedExpand
