Interest of Behavioural Reeducation in Dysfunctions of Masticatory Apparatus. Relations Between Parafunctions and Dysfunctions of Mastixatory Apparatus (PARADYSAM)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
If etiologies of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are various, parafunctions become more and more important. Treatment of patients presenting TMD is based on conservative and reversible therapeutics. The behavioural reeducation of these patients which aims at decreasing their parafunctions is a treatment often performed.
Assessment of pain based on the analogical visual scale [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
To know the incidence of a treatment which is unique, reversible and performed in first intention: behavioural reeducation in the evolution of clinical signs of TMD : pain; disc deplacement with reduction, limitation or mandibular deviation during mouth opening.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Amplitude of mouth opening, mandibular deviation, joint clicking or crepitations,disc deplacement with reduction [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Evaluation of parafunctions as an etiological factor of dysfunctions of masticatory apparatus.
Assessment of behavioural reeducation [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Interest of diagnosis criteria of investigation on temporomandibular disorders.
