WELCOME

Cranio-Mandibular o Temporo-Mandibular Disorders (TMD) comprises a variety of clinical conditions affecting the anatomy and neuro-functional characteristics of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ). Several factors contribute to TMD‘s complexity and they frequently provoke muscular, articular and peri-articular pain and other symptoms:

  • factors related to dentition,
  • clenching,
  • swallowing
  • other musculo-skeletal and psycho-emotional issues,
  • individual tolerance and resilience,
  • ambience.

TMD are the major cause of non-odontogenic orofacial pain (1,2) and has considerable prevalence that has been reported to be between 3.7% and 12%. It is three to five times more frequent in women (3).

TMD have a signicant impact on physical and psycho-social factors(1) and also contributes to a high proportion of socio-economic costs, which are usually associated with comorbidities, such as depression and other psychological factors.(4-6). Temporo-mandibular Disorders (TMDs) and headache are also closely related pathologies. The prevalence of headache in the dysfunctional temporo-mandibular population varies between 48% and 77%, while in the general population the prevalence of headache is around 45% (7-10).

 

Primary headaches as Migraine, ETTH (Episodic Tension Type Headaches), and CDH (chronic daily headaches) are more common in patients with TMD symptoms compared to individuals without headache (11-12). These patients often go to visit several professionals and receive many and/or contradictory treatment options which are usually not evidence-based.
Many TMD therapeutic approaches are individually promoted and they are still based on bio-medical theories or “personal opinion/experience” without any scientific supporting evidence.

Things have changed and scientific research have moved forward (13-14).
Multiple factors act in the etiology of TMDs and the patient’s expectations, values and the context play a key role to pay attention to (15).

So, as the “modern” biopsychosocial model supports, we need to do things differently and to promote a real multidisciplinary evidence & patient-based approach to provide TMD best care.

This will be the main purpose of this our first Cranio Mandibular Congress and for these reasons, every professionals who treat cranio-mandibular disorders and desire to provide the best practise should partecipate.
