Several theories have been proposed concerning the aetiology of dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). To analyse the relationship of radiographic changes to clinical signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction, the present study was conducted in subjects highly predisposed to TMJ involvement, i.e. in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of(More)
Gingival bleeding, pocket depth, and tooth mobility were recorded, and occlusal analyses were made on 147 subjects treated with fixed prostheses placed 4 years earlier. The percent of gingival bleeding was greater in teeth with interferences than in those without interferences. A slight increase in pocket depth was found in connection with interferences.(More)
A total of fifty-nine patients treated with a fixed prosthesis 4 years previously were recalled for a clinical and radiological examination. The subjects studied consisted of two groups: in group A the teeth of the patients with TMJ symptoms were selectively ground, whereas no grinding was performed in group B. At the first examination, occlusal(More)
Because of contradictory reports between clinical and radiographic findings, occlusal analysis correlated to dental panoramic findings was completed in 147 patients treated with fixed prosthesis. Both occlusal interferences and radiographic changes in the TMJ area and/or in dentition were frequently discovered. Dysfunction and occlusal indices gave(More)
This study consists of 147 subjects treated with fixed prostheses 4 years previously. Occlusal analyses were made, and the fillings, crowns, and pontics on the occlusal surfaces were recorded. Occlusal interferences were found in 42.6% of the fillings, in 34.9% of the crowns, in 27.0% of the pontics, and in 24.6% of the intact surfaces. The most common(More)
