Full description

Patients with TMD will involve to this study. After having the diagnose in Yeditepe U. Dental Hospital patients will be sent to the Radiology Department. MRI images will be gathered in sagittal, coronal and axial plane for each patient before and after treatment. Volunteers will be divided into two groups; (1) splint therapy for 6 weeks, (2) splint therapy + osteopathy 2 times a week for 6 weeks randomly. At the end of the treatment, patients will be sent to Radiology for the second images. Health Survey and pain scores, Disc condyle angle, disc and condyle displacements will be measured and compared inter and intra groups.
