Chewing Muscles and the Pathologies Related to their Disorders

Mimoza Canga [13] | Vito Antonio Malagnino [12]


Abstract: As a dentist doctor I have seen a lot of cases when patients come for check outs about headaches or other symptoms without knowing where those come from. These symptoms are very degrading for these patients especially when they have experienced those for a long time and are not sure what to do anymore. Apparently their problems come from disorders of chewing muscles and their temporal mandibular joints. In order to clarify the problems of chewing muscles and their impact on patient health, I have reviewed some articles about the causes of these types of disorders. This revision has revealed that their findings are consistent with each other. The problems of chewing muscles and their joint pathologies are not totally known form the medical doctors and most of the time the patients suffer from pain in the mouth, headache, and limited mouth opening for a long time before they come and see a dentist. Clarifying the causes of these pathologies, the overall knowledge for these diseases, their effects on the body muscles and joints from the head to toes or the other way around, treatments and recommendations are very important not only for the patient but the for the medical referring staff also.
