Featuring contributions from 45 world-renowned researchers and clinicians in the TMD and orofacial pain field, this comprehensive and medically based book presents current and emerging research on TMDs. In contrast to outdated paradigms that center on abnormalities of dental occlusion as the primary etiopathogenetic factor, this book presents TMDs as a major cause of orofacial pain that requires an interdisciplinary approach and thorough biopsychosocial assessment. The authors address the complex group of pathologies that affect the masticatory system through a systematic discussion of anatomy, classification, etiology, diagnosis, and interdisciplinary management. The twofold emphasis on clinical significance and strong supporting evidence makes this book a useful guide for everyday decision making and treatment planning as well as an essential read for all healthcare professionals who want to better understand what is and is not effective in the treatment of TMDs.
