Causes of Functional Disturbances in the Masticatory System 8. Put simply, stress and anxiety cause grinding of teeth and sustained muscular contraction in the face.

This produces pain which causes further anxiety which in turn causes prolonged muscular spasm at trigger points, vasoconstriction , ischemia and release of pain mediators. The pain discourages use of the masticatory system a similar phenomenon in other chronic pain conditions is termed "fear avoidance" behavior , which leads to reduced muscle flexibility, tone, strength and endurance.

This manifests as limited mouth opening and a sensation that the teeth are not fitting properly. It has been postulated that such events induce anxiety and cause increased jaw muscle activity.

Muscular hyperactivity has also been shown in people with TMD whilst taking examinations or watching horror films.

It can occur during sleep or whilst awake. The cause of bruxism itself is not completely understood, but psychosocial factors appear to be implicated in awake bruxism and dopaminergic dysfunction and other central nervous system mechanisms may be involved in sleep bruxism.

If TMD pain and limitation of mandibular movement are greatest upon waking, and then slowly resolve throughout the day, this may indicate sleep bruxism.

Conversely, awake bruxism tends to cause symptoms that slowly get worse throughout the day, and there may be no pain at all upon waking. The relationship of bruxism with TMD is debated.

Many suggest that sleep bruxism can be a causative or contributory factor to pain symptoms in TMD. Trauma[ edit ] Trauma, both micro and macrotrauma, is sometimes identified as a possible cause of TMD; however, the evidence for this is not strong.

It is thought that this leads to microtrauma and subsequent muscular hyperactivity. This may occur during dental treatment, with oral intubation whilst under a general anesthetic , during singing or wind instrument practice really these can be thought of as parafunctional activities.

A causal relationship between occlusal factors and TMD was championed by Ramfjord in the s.

Genetic factors[ edit ] TMD does not obviously run in families like a genetic disease. It has been suggested that a genetic predisposition for developing TMD and chronic pain syndromes generally could exist.

This has been postulated to be explained by variations of the gene which codes for the enzyme catechol-O-methyl transferase COMT which may produce 3 different phenotypes with regards pain sensitivity. COMT together with monoamine oxidase is involved in breaking down catecholamines e.

The variation of the COMT gene which produces less of this enzyme is associated with a high sensitivity to pain.The chapter titles are 18 General considerations of occlusal therapy, 19 Use of articulators in occlusal therapy, 20 Selective grinding, and 21 Restorative considerations of occlusal therapy.

Part 2 covers the aetiology and identification of disturbances in the masticatory system.


Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Masticatory System 2. Constant pain will obviously require an immediate care.

It was also reported that orthodontic treatment has no relationship with TMD signs and symptoms when considering a successful orthodontic treatment.
