    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; temporomandibular disorders; sleep bruxism; glucosamine sulfate; pramipexole; dopamine agonist; botulinum toxin; cerebral palsy;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to explore aspects of pharmaceutical intervention in temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and bruxism. Sleep bruxism is a movement disorder that signals disturbed sleep and constitutes a significant health problem due to TMDs, headache and tooth wear. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental tooth clenching : a model for studying mechanisms of muscle pain

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Odontology

    Author : Andreas Dawson; Malmö University.; [2013]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; tooth clenching; muscle pain; bruxism; Delphi technique; pain measurement; masticatory muscles; experimental pain; proprioceptive allodynia; temporomandibular disorders; serotonin; glutamate; masseter muscle; microdialysis;

    Abstract : The overall goal of this thesis was to broaden knowledge of pain mechanisms in myofascial temporomandibular disorders (M-TMD). The specific aims were to: • Develop a quality assessment tool for experimental bruxism studies (study I). • Investigate proprioceptive allodynia after experimental tooth clenching exercises (study II).
