Posterior Bite Collapse: Guidelines for Treatment Based on Form and Function.

Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2022 May-Jun;42(3):351-359

The clinical syndrome known as posterior bite collapse (PBC) consists of multiple, often pathognomonic factors that deviate from normal, or an occlusion wherein the posterior occlusion is compromised and may ultimately destroy the functional protective capacity of the entire dentition. Secondary clinical sequelae may include accelerated periodontitis progression, temporomandibular disorders (TMD), increasing mobility/fremitus, additional tooth loss, anterior flaring, and loss of occlusal vertical dimension. Etiologic factors may include tooth loss without replacement, orthodontic malocclusions and dentoskeletal disharmonies, periodontitis, accelerated retrograde occlusal/interproximal wear, severe caries, or iatrogenic and conformative dentistry.

Quantitative Sensory Testing Across Chronic Pain Conditions and Use in Special Populations.

Front Pain Res (Lausanne) 2021 28;2:779068. Epub 2022 Jan 28.

Department of Pain and Translational Symptom Science, School of Nursing, University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD, United States.

Chronic pain imposes a significant burden to the healthcare system and adversely affects patients' quality of life. Traditional subjective assessments, however, do not adequately capture the complex phenomenon of pain, which is influenced by a multitude of factors including environmental, developmental, genetic, and psychological. Quantitative sensory testing (QST), established as a protocol to examine thermal and mechanical sensory function, offers insight on potential mechanisms contributing to an individual's experience of pain, by assessing their perceived response to standardized delivery of stimuli.

Do simultaneous mandibular advancement and temporomandibular joint prosthesis impact the upper airway in TMJ ankylosis patients?

Ann Transl Med 2021 Nov;9(22):1638

Department of Oral Surgery, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, College of Stomatology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai Key Laboratory of Stomatology, Shanghai, China.
