Transtornos da Articulação Temporomandibular, Bruxismo, Histeria, Dor


Objetivo. Testar a hipótese de que o bruxismo é um mecanismo na histeria comparando valores em histeria, bruxismo, hostilidade e locais com dor. Método. Nos avaliamos 33 pacientes com bruxismo leve, 52 com moderado, 55 com grave e 42 com bruxismo extremo com o Questionário Multifásico de Personalidade de Minnesota e a escala Cook-Medley para hostilidade. Resultado. Os valores em histeria e hostilidade aumentaram do subgrupo leve para os subgrupos moderado, severo e extremo (p<0,0001). O número médio de locais com dor aumentou com a gravidade do bruxismo e com os valores em histeria (p<0,0001). O grupo com valores mais altos em hostilidade e histeria apresentou número maior de locais com dor do que os grupos com valores baixos em histeria e altos em hostilidade, e com valores baixos em histeria e em hostilidade (p<0,003). Conclusão. Os valores em histeria e hostilidade aumentaram com a gravidade do bruxismo e o número de locais com dor aumentou com os valores em histeria e com a gravidade do bruxismo, sugerindo que o bruxismo é um mecanismo histérico em pacientes com bruxismo e Distúrbios temporomandibulares.
