This multidisciplinary e-book presents a unique approach to diagnosis and management of the various temporomandibular disorders. Written by a large group of eminent researchers and clinicians, it links current scientific concepts of basic anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathology of the temporomandibular joint with specific diagnostic and treatment protocols that are based on sound clinical data. Thus, in keeping with the current thrust in medicine and dentistry, this resource provides access to the best available evidence so that clinicians can make informed rather than empirical decisions about what is appropriate therapy. In a field of treatment long associated with controversy, Temporomandibular Disorders educates readers about which current practices of diagnosis and treatment are strongly supported by scientific research and which are supported only by practical experience and/or anecdotal evidence.
