SUMMARY Objectives. International literature on temporomandibular disorders offers show a relationship between temporomandibular disorders and psychosocial factors. This study aims to go beyond this already known relationship (fully supported by previous literature) and shows how the application of an innovative therapeutic protocol for temporomandibular disorders (called MOBT; Myofunctional Orthognathodontic Biodynamic Therapy), may generate relevant effects in respect to anxiety, pain and disorders associated to temporomandibular disorders. Method. A total of 40 patients with TMD underwent a MOBT treatment in a private clinic in Italy, and completed a self-report questionnaire for evaluating anxiety and pain before and after the treatment. Results. Results showed that MOBT treatment gave a significant benefit for anxiety and pain in subjects with TMD symptoms, especially those with a high trait anxiety and severe correlated pains. Conclusion. MOBT appears to be an efficient therapeutic protocol for temporomandibular disorders.

Abstract

SUMMARY Objectives. International literature on temporomandibular disorders offers show a relationship between temporomandibular disorders and psychosocial factors. This study aims to go beyond this already known relationship (fully supported by previous literature) and shows how the application of an innovative therapeutic protocol for temporomandibular disorders (called MOBT; Myofunctional Orthognathodontic Biodynamic Therapy), may generate relevant effects in respect to anxiety, pain and disorders associated to temporomandibular disorders. Method. A total of 40 patients with TMD underwent a MOBT treatment in a private clinic in Italy, and completed a self-report questionnaire for evaluating anxiety and pain before and after the treatment. Results. Results showed that MOBT treatment gave a significant benefit for anxiety and pain in subjects with TMD symptoms, especially those with a high trait anxiety and severe correlated pains. Conclusion. MOBT appears to be an efficient therapeutic protocol for temporomandibular disorders.
