Electronic address:

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to answer the following question: Among female patients who have skeletal Class III malocclusion, does poor sleep quality increase the prevalence of degenerative joint changes in the temporomandibular joints (DJC-TMJ)?

Materials And Methods: We designed a prospective cohort study and enrolled female patients who required orthognathic surgery to correct skeletal Class III malocclusion from January 2014 to December 2017. This is the first serial study to identify the relationship between sleep quality and DJC-TMJ before orthognathic surgery. The predictor variable was sleep quality, documented either as poor, indicated by a Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) score of 5 or greater, or as good, indicated by a PSQI score of less than 5.

The Effects of Music Listening During Extraction of the Impacted Mandibular Third Molar on the Autonomic Nervous System and Psychological State.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 25. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Professor, Department of Dental Anesthesiology, Field of Oral Maxillofacial Rehabilitation, Developmental Therapeutics Course, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Kagoshima University, Kagoshima, Japan.

Purpose: Pain, anxiety, and nervousness related to dental procedures can cause acute changes in the autonomic nervous system. Music is widely accepted as a relaxation method during dental treatment; however, its effects during dental treatment are unclear. The authors explored the effects of listening to music during extraction of the impacted mandibular third molar on the autonomic nervous system and the psychological state and hypothesized that listening to music would suppress sympathetic nervous activity and decrease anxiety.

An Algorithm for Management of Dentofacial Deformity Resulting From Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: Results of a Multinational Consensus Conference.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Associate Professor, Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Department of Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine; and Associate Chief, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Atlanta, GA.

Purpose: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) frequently affects the temporomandibular joints and may cause dentofacial deformity and dysfunction. The adverse effects of JIA on dentofacial growth, morphology, and function may be due to erosion of the existing mandibular condyle(s), the inhibitory effect of the arthritis on the growing mandible, or both. No algorithm exists for management of JIA-induced skeletal and dental abnormalities; treatment varies widely. Read More
