    Evaluation of Neurodegenerative and Inflammatory Processes in Temporomandibular Joint Disorders Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Introduction: Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) is a process with systemic effects rather than local effects. The purpose of this study is to examine the retinal layer structure using optical coherence tomography (OCT) method in order to detect possible degenerative and inflammatory process in patients with TMD. Material and Methods: 35 healthy controls and 34 TMD patients were evaluated bilaterally in this study. The retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), ganglion cell layer (GCL), inner plexiform layer (IPL) and choroidal thickness were analyzed using OCT. Results: When TMD patients were compared with healthy controls, GCL and IPL volumes and RNFL thickness decreased ...
