Abstract

顎関節症IIIa型に骨格性開咬と口腔周囲筋機能異常を併発した成長期の患者の治療を報告する。関節症状, 筋機能, 咬合改善の順で治療を行い良好な結果を得た。骨格性の問題に対して好ましくない状態を引き起こす可能性のある前方整位型スプリント療法は, それ以降の関節への対応を容易なものとすることにより, 最終的にはすべての症状に対して良好な結果に結び付けることができた。

This report shows treatment for a patient in the growing period with temporomandibular disorder (type-IIIa) with complications, skeletal open bite, and abnormal oral myofunction.<BR>We obtained favorable results from a sequential approach that began with stabilizing the condition in the temporomandibular joint to myofunction, and finished up with improvement of occlusion. To improve the jaw relationship, anterior repositioning splint therapy, which has a possibility of causing undesirable conditions, however, was eventually able to bring about good effects on all the conditions, by making following approaches to the temporomandibular joint easier.
