Improving the quality of diagnosis and treatment orthodontic pathology in patient with temporomandibular joint disorders.

Materials and methods: Analysis – to determine objectives and study plan; clinical-diagnostic methods that include dental and radiological examination (to establish the clinical diagnosis of patients with temporomandibular disorders), electronic axiography (to determine the features of the movements of the articular heads of the mandible), instrumental study the models of jaws in the articulator (to diagnose the state of functional occlusion), statistical (to calculate averages and assess the probability of the results).
Results: After developed and implemented algorithm total dental rehabilitation we have eliminated functional disorders in the masticatory muscles and temporomandibular joints, completely restored the lost function of the masticatory apparatus.
Conclusions: Creation of occlusal relations, which are harmoniously combined with the function of masticatory muscles and temporomandibular joints, allowed to achieve the long period of remission, absence of the complications and recurrences of the disease in the near and long term. These points became the criterions that improved effectiveness of scientifically based individual treatment of mandibular disorders.
