Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Reza Heshmati, DDS, MPH, MS (Ohio State University)
Description: This text is a brief review of the diagnosis and decision making associated with temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide instruction for the diagnosis and management of TMD related problems in the dental office.
Audience: The target audience is principally general dental practitioners and dental students. A secondary audience would include instructors who would use this book as a teaching reference.
Features: An effective evaluation of TMD can generally be made by an adequate review of the patient complaint and a thorough clinical assessment. The authors of this book assist dentists in understanding, diagnosing, and managing the majority of patients with signs and symptoms of TMD, as well as provide a guide to refer the patients to a specialist when necessary. The book has been divided into 12 chapters and includes key ideas after each. A number of high quality clinical photographs are included as well.
Assessment: Temporomandibular dysfunction represents, collectively, a set of head and neck musculoskeletal disorders that may be part of a larger system and behavior complex. As the goal of any patient assessment is to identify and manage the disorder, each clinician must be knowledgeable as to the basis of historic and clinical evidence that represents TMD. The authors of this book provide this knowledge, so this should prove to be a valuable tool for dental practitioners who wish to successfully treat their patients with this disorder.
