This book, in three volumes, is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art guide to the contemporary diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) that will help to compensate for the frequent lack of experience and inadequate training among health professionals who encounter patients with jaw joint problems. The first volume focuses on fundamentals and the pathways to diagnosis. Here, readers will find information on the whole patient philosophy, anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical and imaging evaluation, and diagnostic criteria. The second volume is devoted to non-surgical treatment of TMDs, covering medical and dental treatment, psychiatric considerations, and adjunctive therapies. In the final volume all aspects of total temporomandibular joint replacement and other surgical procedures are discussed, and the volume closes by examining the future of the field, including the use of bioengineered constructs. Key messages from the book are the vital role that recognition of TMDs as chronic pain conditions plays in successful management and the value of a multidisciplinary team approach involving dentists, surgeons, primary care doctors, pain doctors, and allied health professionals.
