Temporomandibular Disorders

Your temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each auditory perceiver. It lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side, so you can verbalize, masticate, and yawn. Quandaries with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control it are kenned as temporomandibular disorders (TMD). But you may auricularly discern it erroneously called TMJ, after the joint.  Dentists believe symptoms arise from quandaries with the muscles of your jaw or with the components of the joint itself. Clinicians should be vigilant in diagnosing TMD in patients who present with pain in the TMJ area. Conditions that sometimes mimic TMD include dental caries or abscess, oral lesions (e.g., herpes zoster, herpes simplex, oral ulcerations, lichen planus), conditions resulting from muscle overuse (e.g., clenching, bruxism, exorbitant masticating, spasm), trauma or dislocation, maxillary sinusitis, salivary gland disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, postherpetic neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, giant cell arteritis, primary headache syndrome, and pain associated with cancer. To increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals top online publishing journals are indexed in different indexing and archiving services. Indexing provides easy access of the article online. The top online publishing journals publish articles which are cited as references by many authors in their work. Citations are important for a journal to get impact factor. Impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in the journal. The impact of the journal is influenced by impact factor, the journals with high impact factor are considered more important than those with lower ones. Indexing provides easy access of the article online. The international journals are among the best open access journals in the world, set out to publish the most comprehensive, relevant and reliable information based on the current research and development on a variety of subjects. This information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles but also review articles (which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports. The inclusion of these publications provides the opportunity for editors and publishers to manipulate the ratio used to calculate the impact factor and try to increase their number rapidly. Impact factor plays a major role for the particular journal.
