"The central theme of this book arises from a single question: What is happening in basic and clinical research today that likely will significantly impact the diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) in the near future?"

This book is dedicated to the pioneering work of Dr Laszlo Schwartz whose 1959 textbook shifted the focus of TMJ treatment from a mechanical to a biophysical approach.

The authors are concerned that although there has been a lot of new research around musculoskeletal disorders that is applicable to TMDs many dentists are unaware of it because it has been published in mainly medical or nonclinical scientific journals. The purpose of this book is to bridge the gap between the results of this research and the knowledge of its potential applications for TMDs possessed by dental clinicians.

The book is divided in to five sections:

  • Understanding regional and widespread pain phenomena

  • Assessing susceptibility to pain development and chronicity

  • Biomechanics of TMJ function

  • Diagnostic technology

  • Therapeutic advances
