Nocturnal tooth contact such as bruxism has been considered to be one of the major factors of temporo-mandibular disorders (TMD). However, little information has been reported regarding mandibular movements during bruxing, because of the limitation of the measuring method. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of bruxism on the(More)
PURPOSE Although patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD) often report impaired eating, the features of food intake difficulty have rarely been estimated. This study compared subjective difficulty in 4 categories of food intake situations among 3 subgroups of TMD patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 511 TMD patients (402 women, 109 men, mean(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the multidimensional properties among subtypes of painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD): myofascial pain (group I), disc displacement (group II), arthralgia (group IIIa) and osteoarthritis (group IIIb). A total of 511 patients answered a battery of questionnaires, which included questions relating to intensity and(More)
Many different factors are known to cause and perpetuate the symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). However, the roles of parafunctional factors have not been clearly elucidated. We found one of these habits in the clinical setting. This parafunctional habit involves daily light touching of the upper and lower teeth, when the mouth is closed. We(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of bruxism on the stomatognathic system. A new device for measuring nocturnal mandibular movements was developed using a PIN photodiode sensor, integrated with polysomnography including electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG) and electro oculography (EOG). One bruxing event was defined(More)
