Differences in the expression of oxidative stress (OS) markers between female patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and healthy individuals indicate that OS plays a role in the pathogenesis of TMD. Because chronic exposure to stress generates oxidative damage during continuous stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, we expected that higher levels of cortisol might be associated with higher oxidative damage. Our aim was to test the association between OS markers, stress ...

Purpose The aim of this study was to compare long-term effectiveness of stabilization splint (SS) with that of placebo splint (PS) in chronic TMD patients and to investigate differences in treatment outcomes based on diagnostic subgroups [disc displacement (DD)/myofascial pain (MP)].

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) have been associated with altered salivary oxidative status, but the relation with pain source and pain severity isn't clarified. With the aim to assess their interaction with TMD, we compared levels of selected salivary oxidative stress (OS) markers (glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, total antioxidant capacity (TAC), uric acid, 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine, malondialdehyde) and salivary cortisol (SC) as a stress indicator, between 20 TMD patients and 15 ...

The present study evaluated diurnal variations and day-to-day fluctuations of salivary oxidative stress (OS) markers in healthy adult individuals. Whole unstimulated saliva was collected at 2 time intervals over 3 consecutive days. Glutathione peroxidase (GPX), superoxide dismutase (SOD), total antioxidant capacity (TAC), and uric acid (UA) were analyzed using spectrophotometric methods, while 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were determined using immunoassays. No signi...

Svrha: Temporomandibularni poremecaj (TMP) najcesci su orofacijalni bolni poremecaj nedentalnog podrijetla. Istraživanje je provedeno kako bi se ispitao ucinak istodobne primjene okluzijske udlage i fizikalne terapije. Pritom je postavljena hipoteza da je istodobna primjena okluzijske udlage i fizikalne terapije ucinkovita metoda za lijecenje anteriornog pomaka zglobne plocice bez redukcije. Materijali i postupci: U istraživanje je bilo ukljuceno 12 pacijenata (srednja dob = 30, 5 god.) s anteri...

The aim of this study was to assess if the consumption of 3 g of a commercially available L- arginine dietary supplement causes a postabsorptive rise in urea concentration or pH of unstimulated saliva in a group of physically active individuals. Salivary urea and pH were determined for 117 participants in a randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled study. Samples were collected by ‘spitting’ method in fasting conditions. One hour prior to their second visit, participants consumed three tablet...
