Manual of Temporomandibular Disorders is a four-color, softcover handbook of information on temporomandibular disorders, an array of medical and dental conditions that affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), masticatory muscles, and contiguous structures. The book will provide evidence-based, clinically practical information that allows dentists to diagnose TMD accurately, rule out disorders that mimic TMD (that is, make a differential diagnosis), and provide effective therapy for most patients. This title offers comprehensive coverage in a compact package. The book's tone is conversational, with a focus on solving TMD problems at chairside. The author's crisp, engaging writing style allows the clinician to find precise answers quickly, without wading through a morass of detail.

This manual is designed to enhance the dentist's ability to efficiently evaluate and treat patients with temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Manual of Temporomandibular Disorders aims to integrate the scientific literature, clinical trials and clinical experiences into an effective strategy for the dentist. For ease of synthesis, only clinically relevant aspects for the vast majority of temporomandibular disorders are covered. Reader friendly and easy-to-use, the book is structured with five major parts: Initial Evaluation, Common Acute TMD Conditions and Treatments, Occlusal Appliance Therapy, Multi-disciplinary Treatment, and Case Scenarios.
The author's considerable expertise in managing TMD patients has been condensed to provide a methodological approach to assessment and treatment of this challenging and diverse disorder. To support the organization of the clinical regimen, useful appendices are collected at the back of the book, and are also available on-line. These include an initial patient questionnaire along with sample records and consultations.
As a practical resource, this book is invaluable for students and practitioners working towards the resolution of TMD.About the Author:
