Overview

Covering both new and proven techniques in this rapidly changing field, this classic text helps you provide solutions to many common occlusal and TMD problems. Clear descriptions and a new full-color design promote a complete understanding of normal, abnormal, and dysfunctional occlusal relationships and masticatory function and dysfunction. With its conservative, cost-effective approach, this book shows you how to achieve treatment goals while keeping your patients' best interests in mind.

Solid foundation of the anatomical, physiological, and biomechanical aspects of the masticatory system gives you the basic foundation for clinical use.
Detailed how-to information on clinical examination, data gathering, and differential diagnosis for temporomandibular disorders helps you learn to correctly plan treatment.
Clinical Comment boxes give you critical thinking points and instructions on how to apply these to everyday clinical practice.

NEW! Robust Q-website features an image library, case studies, and NBDE-style questions.
NEW! Full-color design offers more vivid clinical photos, illustrations, and information.
NEW! Major revisions to Part II with specific detail to Etiology provides more up-to-date information on this critical area.
NEW! Patient education sheets include the most common TMDs.
NEW! Updated treatment algorithms are included for each TMD.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Joseph A. Toljanic
This book is in its third edition (first published in 1985). It is intended to review the anatomic and physiological bases of temporomandibular dysfunction and occlusion as well as provide guidance in diagnosis and treatment. The purpose of this book is, first, to provide a practical approach to understanding masticatory function and the relationship to temporomandibular dysfunction; and second, to provide a step-by-step guide for patient diagnosis and treatment. This text successfully offers a concise and logically formatted review of a complex and often misunderstood area of dentistry. The author does not specifically identify a target audience, but it appears to be practitioners of restorative dentistry and prosthodontics as well as students at the resident/graduate level. This text is too advanced for use at the undergraduate level. This author is unknown to the reviewer. However, the command of the subject matter demonstrated in the text suggests credible authority. The illustrations (diagrams, drawings, and black-and-white photographs) are typically of adequate quality and quantity for the subject matter. Some photographs demonstrating material on occlusion lack sufficient detail to complement text description. The text is very well and often heavily referenced using the latest literature. A very useful appendix is included, demonstrating in flow chart format the decision making process in diagnosis and treatment for all of the muscular and joint pathologies. The overall appearance of the book is adequate for subject matter presented and in keeping with other similar books currently on the market. This is a well written and organized book that should serve as an excellentreference resource for the complex field of occlusion and temporomandibular dysfunction. The addition of references describing the most up-to-date research in the field suggests value for the new edition.

From the Publisher
REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:

"With this textbook being in its 5th edition, it is very well-honed and up-to-date with its rich number of scientific references for each chapter (more than 1850 references in total). The author is internationally renowned for his knowledge and expertise in the fields of occlusion and TMD, and this is portrayed throughout the maturity and depth of the present textbook.

Complementing the text are very clear and useful black and white graphics and illustrations, many of which are original to the illustrator, Allison Lucas Wright, while others are photographs of actual patient cases from the author as well as from others to whom the author provides credit. Still other illustrations and graphics are reflective of various imaging modalities of the temporomandibular joint and its associated structures."
