Failure to understand these perspectives is the primary reason why treatment of so many TMD pain patients is limited to medications for controlling symptoms while ignoring signs of progressive structural damage. Dentistry can do better than that. Accepting the role of the dentist as a "masticatory system physician" puts the practitioner on a higher level of observation. Looking for signs of structural deformation while the cause of the problem is still correctable will enlighten any dentist to needs that too often go undiagnosed.
FIGURE 5-3 The condyle-disk assemblies are braced at the midmost, uppermost position by compression of the medial third of the condyle-disk assembly against the medial apex of each triangular fossa. To resist the inward, upward pressure from the internal pterygoid muscles, the fossae are heavily buttressed with bone in line with the direction of load. The anterior surface of each condyle is simultaneously compressed against the posterior slope of the eminentia. FIGURE 5-4 Further evidence that the horizontal axis runs through the medial poles of the condyles is found in the triangular fossae with the apex related to the medial pole.
When the condyle and disk return to centric relation, the blood flows out and the vessels contract in size. This arteriovenous shunt (also referred to as the vascular knee) is an important part of the intracapsular structure. It makes the retrodiskal tissue highly vascular and richly innervated. If the disk is displaced anteriorly, the condyle loads onto this tissue and causes pain. Inflammation and edema in these tissues are always considerations when the joint is traumatically loaded. Most of the confusion about occlusion, centric relation, and TMDs is the result of wrong information about the structure of the TMJ articulation.
