Salival biomarkers in inflamatory oro-cranio-cervical inflamatory alterations
Aidé Terán, Miguel Francisco Lloret, María Carlota Gutiérrez, Maribel Liñán, Erika Bustos, Juan Manríquez
During the COVID 19 pandemic, the general population suffered from high degrees of stress, the consequence of which was an increase in myofascial pain syndrome. This inflammatory ailment which affects soft tissues causes pain, muscular rigidity, and modifies posture due to hyperactivity. A state of muscular ischemia leads to structural and chemical changes, and to variations in saliva’s electrical conductivity. The objective of this research was to measure the changes in pH and electrical conduc

Prevalence of orofacial pain and temporomandibular disorder among violin and viola players: a pilot study
Carlos Aleixo Dos Reis, Patricia Valério
Prevalence of orofacial pain and temporomandibular disorder was evaluated among violin and viola players, having as control group other string players (cello and double base players). We found a high prevalence and more severity on violin /viola players. We also found that it is not related to the number of hours performing the instruments. Violin and viola players are more prone to headache and more aware of their parafunctional behavior.

Occlusal plane parallel to camper plane: reality or fallacy? A tomographic study on human Sambaqui skeletal remains
Patrícia Valério, Maria Rita Xavier, Sergio Terçaroli, Almiro Machado, Marcos Gribel
Introduction: Since long time ago, dentists had used parallelism with Camper plane as a reference to establish a correct occlusal plane. However, in the literature, there are several different landmarks used to trace the occlusal plane and there are also many researchers questioning this parallelism. To evaluate it, we used ancient skulls from Human Sambaqui skeletal remains. The authors choose an ancient population because they were submitted to same environmental conditions, avoiding bias in c

Does Planas’ Equiplan really work in deep bite treatment?
Orlando Santiago Júnior
Deep bite malocclusion impacts function of the stomatognathic system, patients’ quality of life and self-stem by compromising oral and facial esthetics. The malocclusion can involve teeth and facial skeleton, for such is one of the most challenging malocclusion treatments. The aim of this investigation is to check the clinical belief that Planas’ Equiplan is efficient to treat deep bite malocclusion. Dental overbite was measured in 21 patients submitting to Jaw Functional Orthopedics treatment a

Temporomandibular disorders among wind musical instrument players: an integrative review
Carlos José Santos Da Silva, Patricia Valério, Israel Júnior Borges do Nascimento, Juliana Araújo Da Silva Simoura
Dysfunction of the stomatognathic apparatus is a disturbance of the biomechanics of the masticatory system and craniofacial structure, usually generated by tissue damage of its main components (temporomandibular, neuromuscular, and dental-occlusal system, besides in the craniocervical spine) when the morphofunctional adaptability is exceeded. Musical activity is well-known as one of the most complex activities executed by the human musculoskeletal system, as practitioners require to adopt a non-
