Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the mandibular movements in older people with and without temporomandibular disorder (TMD) associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Study Design. Thirty partially or completely edentulous older adults (65.33 +/- 4.7 years) were assigned to 2 groups: (1) with RA and TMD and (2) without RA and TMD. Chewing movements of the jaws during mastication of the test material (Optocal) and the range of mandibular movements were evaluated by using the JT-3-D kinesiographic device before and after new removable prosthesis insertion. Multiple comparisons were made with analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the Tukey-Kramer test. Results. Comparisons between the 2 groups before and after new prosthesis insertion revealed that the RA and TMD group had reduced opening angles (P < .05) during chewing. After insertion of new prostheses, both groups showed increased opening and closing angles during chewing (P < .05). The mandibular range of motion results showed that patients with RA and TMD exhibited lower aperture and laterality movements (P < .05) compared with controls before and after new prosthesis insertion. However, there was an increase in aperture, lefty laterality, and protrusion values after new prosthesis insertion in both groups. Conclusions. TMD associated with RA may impair mandibular movements. Well-fitted prostheses may improve mandibular movements in older adults, especially those with RA.
