She has started her PHD studies in november 2020. The project aims to clarify the clinical and characteristics, as well as risk factors, in the patients who develop advanced jaw joint disease. The jaw joint is a synovial joint formed by the articulation between the mandible and the temporal bone. It is located anterior to the tragus. The jaw joint is the body's only paired joint which due to its complexity allows movement in 3 axes; transverse, sagital and vertical. Mild to moderate problems with jaw joints and / or masticatory muscles are relatively common and are seen in about 20% of the population. In a small proportion of patients, however, advanced jaw joint diseases develop which can have major consequences such as difficulties in opening the mounth, eating, talking and maintaining their oral hygiene. Today, knowledge about these diseases is limited and we hope to be able to contribute with our research to more information about this difficult disease group.
