Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the 21st century, dentists often meet with patients suffering from ailments of the stomatognathic system and the surrounding tissues of the head and neck, which they can face challenges in diagnosing and treating. These problems often come from the myofascial and joint systems. They are usually the result of long-term stress, patients' mental problems, and untreated or inadequately treated malocclusion. Often, the treatment of a patient requires the cooperation of a dentist and a physiotherapist in such cases. The Special Issue aims to bring together multidisciplinary approaches to the dysfunction of temporomandibular disorders and myofascial disorders in a basic and clinical aspect. We hope that the current views in this issue will allow us to assess diagnostic and therapeutic perspectives and develop and familiarize ourselves with new research related to multidisciplinary viewpoints.

Medicine, dentistry, and physiotherapy are interdisciplinary sciences that seek solutions to facilitate diagnosis, accelerate treatment, and postoperative rehabilitation. The need to eliminate pain and conduct effective anti-inflammatory and regenerative treatment prompts doctors to use the achievements of new research fields, such as physical diagnostics, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation. Physical medicine is becoming more and more common in medical diagnosis and therapy. It is not an alternative to essential clinical or pharmacological treatment. However, we can use it to facilitate diagnosis, speed up treatment, and eliminate complications.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • TMD;
  • Temporomandibular and myofascial disorders;
  • Diagnosis of temporomandibular disorders;
  • Innovative treatment of temporomandibular disorders;
  • Alternative methods of reducing myofascial pain;
  • Multispecialty therapies used in the treatment and rehabilitation of head and neck disorders;
  • Physical diagnostics with particular emphasis on X-ray diagnostics;
  • X-ray diagnostics;
  • Interdisciplinary physiotherapy;
  • Relationship between disorders of the masticatory system and dysfunctions within other systems and organs;
  • Association of masticatory system disorders with general diseases and/or taking medications for these diseases.
