The trends of the TMJ patients on dental clinic of pediatric dentistry. Comparison finished patients with discontinued patients by questionnaire



Shoni Shikagaku Zasshi. Japanese Journal of Pedodontics 28(2): 518-527



We made a follow-up survey on the TMJ dysfunction syndrome patients who visited our clinic, using questionnaires for the purpose of raising the dental management of TMJ dysfunction syndrome patients and obtained as following results. 1. The percentage of questionnaires which were sent back was 61.5% with the finished group, and was 38.9% with the discontinued group. The average percentage for all subjects was 50.7%. 2. From the results from all subjects who answered the questionnaire and sent them back, it was found that the ratio of the patients who had understanding of the explanation before the treatment of the TMJ dysfunction syndrome was 60.5%. The ratio of the patients who answered "I could not use the splint completely" was 2.6%, and the ratio of the patients who answered "I used the splint completely in spite of malaise when using it" was 84.2%. The ratio of the patients who answered "I felt that treat time was long" was 57.9%. The ratio of the patients who had a relapse of the symptom after treatment was 33.3%, but 22.2% of their symptoms were temporary and soon disappeared. 3. There were 4 questions which showed statistical significant differences between the finished group and the discontinued group. They were the attitude to the treatment after examination at first visit, period of time the splint was used, complaint of discomfort while using the splint, concerned mind of visiting interval. 4. The rate of the patients who complained of the limitation of jaw at the first time was higher with the finished group than with the discontinued group.
