  • If patients complain about sudden ill-fitting occlusal sensation(acute malocclusion), a dentist has to consider many possible causes about that. Acute malocclusion is characterized its sudden onset and mainly can be caused by teeth and its related structure problem. But we always keep on mind that acute malocclusion also can be caused by temporomandibular disorders In this 3 cases of acute malocclusion, evaluating by patient history, clinical and radiographic findings, we diagnosed them as 1. Lateral pterygoid muscle spasm, 2.. Retrodiscitis, 3. Osteoarthritis. Through this non-odontogenic acute malocclusion cases, we emphasize the key of diagnosis is on comprehensive and careful patient history taking and clinical examination.

  • Septic arthritis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a rare disease. The most common symptoms of this disease are acute malocclusion, limited mouth opening, swelling, and tenderness of affected TMJ. These symptoms are often confused with internal derangement of the articular disc, rheumatoid arthritis, retrodiscitis, or osteoarthritis. Therefore, differential diagnosis by image examination is required. Usually, antimicrobial treatment and surgical drainage by needle aspiration, arthroscopy, or arthrotomy are effective treatment approaches. In this study, a patient who was diagnosed with septic arthritis was treated with arthrocentesis and antibiotics without significant complications. We present a case report with a review of the literature.

  • A prevalence of temporomandibular disorders(TMD) based on the clinical sign and symptom in 155 patients were investigated. History taking with interview chart and clinical examination were performed. Age and gender of the patients, duration of TMD, location of pain, joint sound, limitation of mouth opening and more detailed diagnostic name were identified. The results of this study were as follows: 1. TMD was more prevalent in female than in male. TMD was the most prevalent at the age of 20s and decreased with age. 2. Acute TMD was more prevalent than chronic one. 3. About ninety percent of TMD patients had pain. Pain had mainly a unilateral origin. Muscle pain was mainly related with the masseter muscle. 4. Joint sound was identified in about fifty-six percent of the TMD patients and unilateral joint sound was more prevalent than bilateral one. 5. Limitation of mouth opening was observed in about forty percent of the TMD patients. 6. In TMD patients, muscle dysfunction was the most prevalent one. In muscle disorders local muscle soreness was the most prevalent one. In joint disorders, capsulitis was the most prevalent one. In muscle-joint disorders, trigger point pain with retrodiscitis was the most prevalent one.
