Deodato F., Trusendi R., Giorgetti R., Scalese M. Predisposition for temporomandibular joint disorders: loose ligaments. In: Cranio-The Journal of Craniomandibular Practice, vol. 24 (3) pp. 179 - 183. Chroma, Inc, 2006.
Loose ligaments are often a predisposing factor of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. This causal factor was analyzed in 701 subjects presenting at the TMJ and Posture Center of Siena University with TMJ pain or dysfunction. Along with the conventional jaw examination, a Carter and Wilkinson test as modified by Beighton was also done. We found a correlation among the parameters of age, gender, TMJ disorder, joint pain, muscle pain, and loose ligaments.
