Abstract (Croatian)
Udlage u širem smislu predstavljaju velik broj skupina mobilnih intraoralnih naprava pomoću kojih se provodi biomehanička terapija te uspostavlja neuromuskularna funkcijska harmonija dijelova stomatognatog sustava. Svrha rada je pregled literature vezan uz liječenje temporomandibularnog poremećaja s naglaskom na klinički značaj i način izradbe michiganske udlage. U sklopu praktične primjene michiganske udlage i dosadašnje znanstvene evaluacije uspjeha liječenja TMP-a opisan je klinički slučaj s 9-godišnjim praćenjem. Općenito, principi palijativne medicine preporučuju se u liječenju TMP-a, što podrazumijeva liječenje i kontrolu temporomandibularnog bola. Prednost se daje neinvazivnim i reverzibilnim metodama liječenja. Udlaga postiže bihevioralni učinak samosvjesnosti (kognicije) o položaju, funkciji i parafunkciji mandibule, te se postiže učinak placeba.
Abstract (English)
Splints, in a broader sense, include various groups of removable intraoral appliances which are used in biomechanical treatment approach and they help establish the neuromuscular functional balance between different parts of the stomatognathic system. The aim of the paper was to review the literature related to temporomandibular disorder (TMD) treatment with special attention given to clinical importance and the fabrication of the Michigan splint. A clinical case with a 9-year follow-up is presented within the framework of Michigan splint practical use and an evaluation of TMD treatment success until now. Generally, in TMD treatment, the principle of palliative medicine is preferred, which means treatment, control and alleviating of temporomandibular pain. The principle of non-invasive and reversible methods of treatment is preferred. The splint achieves a behavioral effect of self-awareness (cognition) about the position, function and parafunction of the mandible as well as a placebo effect.
