Neurology & TMJ Elsewhere

Postby CureOrBust » Sat Oct 27, 2012 7:16 pm

OK, this post is "as is", I am not proposing the link or supporting the conclusions by posting the following, just supplying what I came across today on the web..

I have seen in Amir's posts on other threads,. people (oincluding myself) asking if there is anyone else in the world providing this treatment. Now, none of these links or associations are "Amir" approved, but they may provide leads to people with similar beliefs as Amir; although I do think if Amir has yet to contact them, he may wish to.


ramblings start now.... NB: It includes URL's and email addresses for those who want to and can follow it further.

Temporomandibular joint disorder in a patient with multiple sclerosis--review of literature with a clinical report.

Abstract
Temporomandibular disorders are a form of musculoskeletal disorders, which reduce the function of stomatognathic system and they are related to some other diseases causing painful conditions and disorders of oral function. The aim of this paper is to describe a one year follow up clinical case of a female patient with comorbid multiple sclerosis and a relatively rare form of articular disc disorder. Primary clinical diagnostics encompassed manual methods of TMJ examination. Definite diagnosis included radiologic examination. Clinical hyperextensive condyle position was palpated bilaterally and subsequently confirmed by a functional panoramic radiograph of TMJ. The anterior displacement of disc with reduction was diagnosed by magnetic resonance and in the right joint there was a disc displacement upon excursive movement. From relevant literature, the relationship of a number of diseases that can be related to functional disorder of the orofacial system, such as multiple sclerosis, has been described from many aspects. Also, apart from the standard classification of one form of anterior displacement of the disc, made primarily by magnetic resonance, cases of disc displacement upon excursive mandibular movement can rarely be found in literature.

A preliminary study into the dental health status of multiple sclerosis patients
Anne L Symons MDS, PhD1,*, Mario Bortolanza BDSc2, Stephen Godden BDSc2, Gregory Seymour BDS, MDSc, PhD, MRCPath3

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of unknown etiology involving the central nervous system. Since MS affects the whole body, orofacial aspects of the disease must be expected, particularly since loss of muscular coordination may result in a diminished ability to maintain oral hygiene. This preliminary study examined the dental health status of 22 volunteer MS patients. A questionnaire collected data regarding medical and dental histories and socieo-demographic information. Extra- and intra-oral examinations were carried out on all subjects to determine the particular dental treatment needs of this special group. The DMFT and CPITN scores for this group did not indicate that MS patients were more susceptible to dental caries or periodontal disease. However, the prevalence of trigeminal neuralgia and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction in the group studied indicated that these conditions may be manifest in MS patients and warrant further investigations.

We are a dental office limited to orofacial pain, TMJ, sleep medicine, orthodontics, movement disorders, and dental medicine. Northern California Cranio-Facial Diagnostic Center has been in Alameda (the San Francisco Bay Area / East Bay) and in Sutter Creek, California since 1986. Dr. Dwight Jennings is the owner.

Dr. Jennings has been practicing pain management and orthodontics for 35 years. He has developed a number of innovative diagnostic and treatment protocols that have significantly improved the effectiveness of treatment for jaw dysfunction. He has done extensive literature research into the neuro-pathology involved with jaw dysfunction, providing a clearer understanding of this complex disorder. His experience with pain patients has significantly altered his opinions and approach to treatment of orthodontic patients. He was the first to publish an article in a major dental magazine linking jaw alignment to Parkinson’s.

At a very fundamental level, the primary problem that is found in all Parkinson’s patients is that there jaw is being forced to go to a place very different than where the muscles want the jaw to be. In most cases they need a lot of height in their bite (they are agape), so any mouth guard from the local drug store would likely improve their bite considerably (by making it higher). Many of the recent cases I have seen have had very damaging orthodontics (usually bicuspid extraction therapy which forces the lower jaw backwards). Some of the cases respond quickly, some have to be more precisely aligned and the bad orthodontics corrected, and a few percent don’t respond.

Our clinical responses (some immediate) indicate that the cause of the tremors is not from dopamine deficiency, but from jaw nerve alignment sensors influencing brain stem (reticular formation). See article pdf on reticular formation.


Multiple Sclerosis
There exists considerable medical evidence that dysfunction of the Trigeminal System is a major factor in the development of multiple sclerosis. Searches of the medical literature indicates that this connection has never been investigated.

Definition: the Trigeminal System consists of the trigeminal nerve, brain nuclei which receive it, and various regions within the brain which the nerve influences, as well as the dental, skeletal, muscular, and cutaneous body parts which the nerve innervates.

cureorbust, this is very interesting. thanks. i guess these things can be conveniently overlooked or brushed under the rug when it comes to mainstream med. you would think findings like this would be front page. instead, any drug that they come up with no matter how dangerous gets front and center stage. treating the autoimmune "theory".

The news commonly reports stories that are found in peer reviewed publications. They leave the stories like this one to the current affairs programmes.

Good find.

The research needs to start somewhere.

Amir is trying to put something together for the patients he sees (research/results that is). Like Blossom says this needs to be researched.
