Temporomandibular rahatsızlıklar (TMR); stomatogenetik sistemin disfonksiyonuna yol açan çiğneme kasları, temporomandibular eklem ve orofasiyal yapılara ait semptomlarla karakterize genel bir terimdir. TMR, orofasiyal bölgedeki odontojen kaynaklı olmayan ağrının başlıca sebebidir ve iskeletkas rahatsızlıklarının bir alt sınıfı olarak değerlendirilir (1). TMR, başlıca semptomları kas ve eklem ağrıları, alt çene hareketleri ve ağız açıklığında kısıtlanma ve eklem sesleri olan multifaktöriyel…

Evaluation of pain, jaw movements, and psychosocial factors in elderly individuals with temporomandibular disorder under laser phototherapy
TLDR
It is indicated that LPT is able to promote pain relief and improvement of jaw movements in elderly patients with TMD, with a positive effect on psychosocial aspects.
Evaluation of effect of low-level laser therapy on adolescents with temporomandibular disorder: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The aim of the proposed study is to assess the effect of low-level laser therapy on occlusal contacts, mandibular movements, electromyography activity in the muscles of mastication and pain in adolescents with TMD.
The use of low level laser therapy in the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders. Review of the literature
TLDR
The literature review in reference to the use of LLLT in the treatment of TMDs, considering the scientific evidence level of the published studies, concluded that the results should be taken with caution due to the methodological limitations.
Effects of oral motor exercises and laser therapy on chronic temporomandibular disorders: a randomized study with follow-up
TLDR
LLLT combined with OM-exercises was more effective in promoting TMD rehabilitation than LLLT alone was.
Efficacy of red and infrared lasers in treatment of temporomandibular disorders — a double-blind, randomized, parallel clinical trial
TLDR
Both red and infrared laser therapy are effective in the treatment and remission of TMD symptoms, using a randomized parallel-group double-blind trial.
Effectiveness of physiotherapy and GaAlAs laser in the management of temporomandibular joint disorders.
TLDR
The laser therapy was effective in the improvement of the range of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and promoted a significant reduction of pain symptoms.
Comparative clinical study of light analgesic effect on temporomandibular disorder (TMD) using red and infrared led therapy
TLDR
Red and infrared LED therapy can be useful in improving outcomes related to pain relief and orofacial function for TMD patients, and LED devices constitute an attractive alternative for LLLT.
Measurements of jaw movements and TMJ pain intensity in patients treated with GaAlAs laser.
TLDR
Laser application can be a supportive therapy in the treatment of TMD, since it resulted in the immediate decrease of painful symptoms and increased range of mandibular movements in the treated group; the same results were not observed in the placebo group.
Effect of Low-Level Laser on Healing of Temporomandibular Joint Osteoarthritis in Rats
TLDR
Treatment of TMD with LLLT after 7 days of irradiation with a wavelength of 880 nm was associated with a greater improvement compared to the control group, and angiogenesis in both groups was similar.
