Abstract :

Background: The    prevalence    of    rhinosinusitis    was    20%    in    ambulatory    patients    and    was    mostly    affected    by    viral    infections    and allergy.    If    conservative    treatments    of    rhinosinusitis    failed,    surgical    procedure    is    an    alternative    choice.    Previous    case    report    revealed that    the    rhinosinusitis    symptoms    were    successfully    relieved    by    the    "assisted    drainage"    therapy    only.    Nevertheless,    this    therapy    was    less successful    in    children    with    sleep    bruxism    (SB).    Purpose: To    report    an    integrated    orofacial    therapy    for    management    of    rhinosinusitis children    with    sleep    bruxism    (SB)    which    consisted    of    the    assisted    drainage,    night-guard    and    masseter    muscle    massage    therapies. Case: Two    boys    who    suffered    from    rhinosinusitis    with    bruxism    were    unsuccessfully    treated    with    conventional    treatment.    Case  management: Patients    was    subjected    to    the    assisted    drainage    therapy    that    was    scaling    and    root    planning    combined    with    gingival    massage, and    masseter    muscle    massage;    night    guard    was    worn    in    night    sleep.    They    successfully    relieved    the    rhinosinusitis    symptoms.    Conclusion:  Based    on    the    successful    result,    this    integrated    therapy    could    be    suggested    as    an    adjuvant    in    rhinosinusitis    management.
