Abstract

EFFECT OF ULTRASOUND THERAPY OVER TEMPEROMANDIBULAR JOINT

Dr. Smita Kamtane* and Dr. D. M. Sable

ABSTRACT

The Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD’s) are the main source of orofacial pain of non-dental origin[1], found in 28% to 86% of the population. Diagnosis of TMD is based on clinical and radiographic investigations. There are varieties of imaging modalities available for TMJ including transcranial radiograph, panoramic radiography, conventional CT, corrected tomography of TMJ, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and arthrography. Up till now no single treatment modality for temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD) being effective, so the search for modification in or combination of treatment modalities have been tried The current study was designed to study the effect therapeutic ultrasound on TMJ joint. Fifteen patients were included in this study. Inter-incisal opening (in mm) and pain (evaluated by visual analogue scale (VAS))were measured preoperatively and postoperatively. Results showed that the ultrasound treatment is effective in pain relief only.

Keywords: Temporomandibular joint, cone beam computed tomography, Therapeutic Ultrasound.
