Burning mouth syndrome(BMS) refers to a chronic orofacial pain disorder usually unaccompanied by mucosal lesions or other clinical signs. Tongue(anterior and lateral border) is found to be the most common site for the burning sensations in the oral cavity, and various oral sites may be affected including hard palate and lips. The etiology of this disorder remains poorly understood, but the various factors might be related with the pathogenesis of the BMS. These factors have been devided into local, systemic and psychological. Recently, there have been increasing reports that the pain of BMS may be neuropathic in origin. The complex and multifactorial etiology of BMS necessitates multidisciplinary approach for the management of these patients. Recently, several studies have reported that oral parafunctional habits could be related the pathogenesis of BMS, and tried to control the symptom of BMS with various methods. We reported the cases who had the symptom of burning mouth syndrome with removable anti-nociceptive appliance in the lower dentition.

Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease that affects multiple sites of the body. Often it involves the oral mucosa, but also involve other sites such as skin, genitals, scalp and nails. There is no clear cause of oral lichen planus (OLP), current data suggest that OLP is a T-cell mediated autoimmune disorder which may have an altered self-peptide triggering apoptosis of oral epithelial cells. Usually OLP appears in middle-aged women which tends to be chronic with periods of exacerbation and remission. There are many theories those causes the OLP such as psychological and environmental factors, genetic tendency, drugs and more. 60-70% of lichen planus is accompanied by oral lesions, and more than half of its cases are not able to defined by their skin. In this study, among all the possibility(possible) theories, we tried to evaluate the influence of emotional stress in exacerbating OLP. There were thirty patients with a clinical or histological diagnosis of OLP and other thirty subjects who did not show any signs of systemic disorders include OLP. They were evaluated by using modified Holmes and Rahe`s Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS). As a result, a significantly higher level of stress was found in the OLP patients than the control group. Therefore it could be concluded that psychological stressors play an important role in the exacerbating OLP.

Personality characteristics of recurrent aphthous ulcer patients was analyzed psychologically by means of the SCL-90-R. The patients, 20 recurrent aphthous ulcer(RAU) patients, 33 oral lichen planus patients who visited Department of Oral Medicine, in Pusan National University Dental Hospital from 2010 to 2011. 59 control were collected from students of School of Dentistry, in Pusan National University. The obtained results were as follows. 1. Mean values of T-scores on 9 basic scales in RAU patients group, oral lichen planus patients group and control group were within normal range. 2. The T-score of SOM in RAU patients group were significantly higher than that in the control group. 3. The T-score of SOM, DEP, HOS in RAU female patients group were remarkably higher than that in the female control group. 4. The T-score of HOS in RAU patients group were significantly higher than that in the oral lichen planus patients group.

Oral lichen planus(OLP) is a chronic inflammatory disease with cell-mediated immune responses, but the exact cause is unknown. The treatment aim of OLP is not complete cure but to alleviate symptoms. In this study, two kinds of corticosteroid gargling solutions used for comparing the effects. From 2002 to 2010, 180 patients diagnosed with oral lichen planus and received topical steroid therapy in the Pusan National University Dental Hospital. Each of two types of solution contained dexamethasone (dexamethasone disodium phosphate) and prednisolone (
). A period of relief of symptoms and recurrence was recorded. The group using solution containing dexamethasone(dexa gargle) was prescribed to 33 patients(25 female, 8 male) and another group containing prednisolone (solon gargle) included 147 patients (114 female, 33 male). The effect of dexa gargle seemed faster than the solon gargle. There was no significant difference for recurrent rate between the groups using dexa and solon gargle.

This study was designed to assess follow-up study of condylar bone changes using cone beam computed tomography in patients with osteoarthritis. The author performed clinical examination for osteoarthritis patients who visited Orofacial Pain Clinic, Department of Oral Medicine, Pusan National University Hospital. CBCT(Cone beam computed tomography) was taken for 228 joints in 114 subjects. After average 10 months, CBCT was retaken. A Oral medicine and Oral radiologist evaluated CBCT each other. Condyle bone changes were classified by no bone change, flattening, erosion, osteophyte and sclerosis. The obtained results were as follow. 1. The condylar bone changes of osteoarthritis in temporomandibular disorder were as follow: 1) The transitions of each types of condylar bone changes was maintained at the initial state of the majority. 2) The transition of erosion was distributed erosion, flattening, sclreosis, osteohyte in order. 3) The transition of flattening was distributed flattening, osteohyte, normal, sclreosis in order. 4) The transition of osteohyte was distributed osteohyte, erosion, sclreosis, flattening in order. 5) The transition of sclreosis was distributed sclreosis, osteohyte, erosion, normal in order. 2. The signs and symptoms according to transition of each types of condylar bone changes were as follow 1) In the transition of condylar bone changes from erosin to erosion, pain, noise, LOM and MCO had symptomatic improvement. In the transition of condylar bone changes from erosin to flattening, pain, LOM, MCO had symptomatic improvement. In the transition of condylar bone changes from erosin to no bony change, pain, noise, LOM had symptomatic improvement. In the transition of condylar bone changes from erosion to flattening than the maintenance of eosion, MCO had symptomatic improvement. 2) In the transition of condylar bone changes from flattening to flattening, pain, noise and MCO had symptomatic improvement. In the transition of condylar bone changes from flattening to sclerosis, LOM had symptomatic improvement. 3) In the transition of condylar bone changes from osteophyte to osteophyte, pain, LOM and MCO had symptomatic improvement.

A retrospective study was conducted to determine the patterns of Temporomandibular Disorder(TMD) among adolescents (12-19 years) over last ten years. 174 patients who had visited the Oral medicine of Pusan National University Dental Hospital in 2000 and 491 patients in 2008 were found on chart review. The results obtained were as follows : 1. The number of adolescent patients was significantly increased in 2008 than in 2000, especially in male. 2. Bruxing, clenching, holding habits and bad sleep hygiene were highly increased more in 2008 than in 2000. 3. Osteoarthritis was significantly increased in 2008 than in 2000 and anterior disc dislocation without reduction was slightly increased. 4. The ratio of male to female adolescent patients with osteoarthritis was remarkably increased. Among the patients who had holding, bruxing, clenching habits, significantly increased osteoarthritis found to be common. This could imply holding, bruxing, clenching habits are prominently associated with increasing risk of developing osteoarthritis.

Temporomandibular disorder(TMD) is relatively prevalent disease, and quality of life may be impaired in TMD patients. Like general population, dental hospital workers are also exposed to the risk of TMD. But, many of them tend to overlook or tolerate their symptoms for lack of time and interest. Therefore, problems may become more serious, causing interference of performing task and decrease of quality of life. The aim of this study were to obtain data for TMD prevalence in dental hospital workers and to evaluate quality of life according to TMD symptoms. Subjects were recruited from Wonkwang University Dental Hospital. After consent, subjects completed quality of life questionnaire and were evaluated for subjective and objective signs and symptoms of TMD. Subjects were classified into 4 groups : (1) normal group (2) joint disorder group, (3) local myalgia group, and (4) myofascial pain group. The result of the study indicated that TMD negatively influences the quality of life in dental hospital worker. TMD symptoms can deteriorate quality of life in dental hospital worker. Future effort to make protocol for proper management is needed.
