Abstract

This study was designed to confirm the association between the pain of Tension-Type Headache(TTH) patients and their Oral Parafunction(OPF). Patients with TTH(n=58) visited the Department of Oral Medicine, Kyung Hee University Dental Hospital during two months were recruited to this study. 20 patients with OPF(bruxism, clenching, bruxism & clenching) are the experimental group and 38 patients without OPF are the control group. Both groups were asked to answer the questionnaire based on the diagnostic criteria of TTH(IHS). Then it was analyzed statistically. This study was designed to confirm the association between the pain of Tension-Type Headache(TTH) patients and their Oral Parafunction(OPF). Patients with TTH(n=58) visited the Department of Oral Medicine, Kyung Hee University Dental Hospital during two months were recruited to this study. 20 patients with OPF(bruxism, clenching, bruxism & clenching) are the experimental group and 38 patients without OPF are the control group. Both groups were asked to answer the questionnaire based on the diagnostic criteria of TTH(IHS). Then it was analyzed statistically. 1. There was no difference in sex(p=0.91) and age(p=0.73) between two groups. 2. In the experimental group, dull pain was presented more frequently than in the control group. But, there was no difference between two groups(p=0.69). 3. In the experimental group, severe pain was presented more frequently than in the control group. But, there was no difference between two groups(p=0.40). 4. In the experimental group, pain shown bilaterally was presented more frequently than in the control group. But, there was no difference between two groups(p=0.52). 5. In the experimental group, pain was more increased by physical activities than in the control group. But, there was no difference between both groups(p=0.74). The pain of TTH patients with OPF was presented to be non-dull pain frequently and more bilaterally and severely, also increased more by physical activities than the pain of TTH patients without OPF. But, there was no significant difference between two groups. Therefore, it is considered that the pain of TTH is not influenced by OPF.
