The National Institute of Dental Research (NIDR) has a requirement

for a one-year study to assess patients' biochemical, molecular, and

cellular responses to alloplastic jaw joint implants (i.e., composed

of either teflon-proplast or silastic).  The pathophysiology of

rejection of alloplastic jaw joint implants will be investigated

according to:  (a) the particular type of implant material, i.e.,

teflon-proplast or silastic, and (b) the TMD sub-group classification

of the patient's condition prior to implantation, i.e., disc

derangement, arthritis (arthralgia, osteoarthritis of the TMJ,

osteoarthrosis of the TMJ), or muscle disorder (e.g., myofascial

pain).
