Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0867154470, Hardcover)

This multidisciplinary textbook 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, the book provides access to the best available evidence so that clinicians can make informed rather than empirical decisions about what is appropriate therapy. Where lack of data or rapid changes in a particular discipline do not allow for evidence-based conclusions or recommendations, the book highlights the areas of agreement and disagreement in order to expose the deficiencies in our present knowledge base. In a field of treatment long associated with controversy, this book 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.
