Salival biomarkers in inflamatory oro-cranio-cervical inflamatory alterations
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

Occlusal plane parallel to camper plane: reality or fallacy? A tomographic study on human Sambaqui skeletal remains
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?
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-
