Although James Costen was not the first to ascribe ear pain, tinnitus, impaired hearing, and even dizziness to temporomandibular joint dysfunction, he developed an integrated and systematic approach ascribing the symptoms to dental malocclusion. He wrote extensively on it, and a few years after his original article, the term Costen's syndrome came into general use. Recently, the use of the eponym has decreased, as dental malocclusion has assumed a lesser role in explaining many of the symptoms… 
Otalgia and Aversive Symptoms in Temporomandibular Disorders
TLDR
Factor analysis revealed that tinnitus and dizziness loaded on separate factors, and neither was consistently related to measures of pain or to indices of illness behavior or somatic focus in patients with chronic temporomandibular pain.
Manifestaciones otológicas ante disfunción de la articulación temporomandibular
TLDR
To determine the presence of otologyc symptomatology secondary to Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, it is necessary to observe the phenotype and attitude of the patient on having realized the anamnesis and the physical examination.
The Association between Occlusal Features and Temporomandibular Disorders in Northern Jordan: A Cross-sectional Study
TLDR
A convenient sample of Northern Jordanians was used in the study and DC/TMD diagnostic outcomes and their associated features represented the dependent variables, namely, pain-related TMD, Intra-articular Disorders (IAD), Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD), joint sounds, joint locking and headache attributed to TMD.
Temporomandibular Joint and Correlated Fissures: Anatomical and Clinical Consideration
TLDR
An anatomical study of the fissures related to the temporomandibular joint was performed in 40 dry human skulls and the distances measured presented a significant variability among different specimens.
Nerve Entrapment Headaches at the Temple: Zygomaticotemporal and/or Auriculotemporal Nerve?
TLDR
Treatment of temporal nerve entrapment includes medications, nerve injections, dental appliances, cryoneuroablation, chemical neurolysis, neuromodulation, and surgical decompression to reduce nerve irritation and subsequently deactivate stimulated migraine centers.
The Principles Prevention in Dentistry
TLDR
The focus of many health education interventions has been on defined diseases, targeted at changing the behaviors of high-risk individuals, which has been very popular with the dental profession as it fits the clinical approach to care and treatment of individual patients.

Costen's syndrome: a reinterpretation.
TLDR
Costen's syndrome is the term applied to a symptom-complex described by J. B. Costen in 1934 that the symptoms forming his syndrome were produced by overclosure of the mandible and that "opening the bite" would clear up these symptoms.
NEURALGIAS AND EAR SYMPTOMS: ASSOCIATED WITH DISTURBED FUNCTION OF THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT
TLDR
It is shown that in the first small group there appeared patients with unilateral loss of molar support, however, which demonstrated the pain qualities more clearly and responded more promptly to the proposed solution of the problem; that is, the replacement of adequate molars support on the affected side.

TLDR
A theory is offered here that muscle hyperactivity associated with PDS is not a generalized hyperactivity but one in which activity of certain motor units is increased disproportionately.
GLOSSODYNIA: REFLEX IRRITATION FROM THE MANDIBULAR JOINT AS THE PRINCIPAL ETIOLOGIC FACTOR: STUDY OF TEN CASES
During the observation of ninety patients with neuralgia and aural symptoms associated with destruction and disturbed function of the temporomandibular joint, ten were found to have burning pain
X-ray Study in Relation to the Mandibular Joint Syndrome
TLDR
The roentgenological findings of temporo-mandibular joint pathology other than acute infections, fractures, dislocations, specific diseases, malignant lesions, or acute trauma changes are correlated.
XLII. The Mechanism of Trismus and its Occurrence in Mandibular Joint Dysfunction
Trismus is the tonic contraction of the muscles of mastication, and varies in effect from a subpainful tenseness of movement of the lower jaw, due to mild reflex irritations about the jaws, to the
