Overview

Unique in its approach, this volume focuses on the biologic basis for the clinical management of complex temporomandibular joint diseases. TMJ specialists of international repute review the current treatment modalities available, and con- sider their rationale and biologic background, their drawbacks, and the scientific basis of their outcome. The first two sections concentrate on treatment planning and are intended to serve as a basis for the subsequent chapters. In the third section the biologic basis and outcome of several surgical procedures are addressed. The emphasis of the fourth section is on post-operative care and rehabilitation, together with the management of treatment failure. Reflecting the latest advances in this important area of clinical research, this volume will prove an invaluable source of reference to oral and maxillofacial surgeons, dentists, temporomandibular joint specialists, radiologists and physiologists.
