Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This updated text is essential for any GDP or hospital practitioner. . . it contains insightful coverage, with both text and figures easily absorbed and at incredible value for money". (British Dental Journal, 25 September 2010)

"The strength of this book is in the clinical detail presented in its discussion of differential diagnosis, occlusal appliance therapy and the multidisciplinary treatment approach. The personal way in which this book was written gives the interested clinician a bird's eye view of the thinking of an experienced orofacial pain practitioner in making diagnoses and constructing reasonable treatment plans. The review of the many different types of appliances including configurations, materials, techniques and lab instructions is as comprehensive a clinical discussion as I have seen in one place. Part 4, the discussion of multidisciplinary treatment also provides lots of practical information for the clinician and really frames the discussion in an easy to understand clinical way without getting lost in the description of clinical trials and research. Dr. Wright's use of case reports in section 5 helps cement the points he makes in earlier chapters. His inclusion of appendices with diagrams, forms, and instructions and the editable files on the CD gives the clinician a windfall of material from which to draw from to create printed documents and PowerPoint presentations for patient education and for potential referring doctors. To my knowledge, it is unprecedented for an author to provide his personal lecture slides (in an editable format no less) with the purchase of the book."
(AAOP E-News, Summer 2010)

"Dr. Wright's Manual of Temporomandiblar Disorders will be a valuable addition to the library of those who treat TMD patients and institutional libraries as well." (Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod, August 2010)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Janet H. Southerland, DDS, MPH, PhD (Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry)
Description: This overview of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) focuses on the evidence-based diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment for most people with TMD problems. The book works to simplify the topic with guidelines to rule out other disorders that might mimic TMD. Each chapter includes FAQs, quick consults, technical tips for evaluation, and techniques to treat various complications. Previous editions were published in 2010 and 2005.
Purpose: The TMD patient is often very challenging to treat in the regular dental setting. The purpose of this book is to simplify the complexities of TMD for ease of clinical understanding and application, as well as to integrate the scientific literature, clinical trials, and clinical experiences into an effective strategy. In addition, the book attempts to provide a systematic guide on how to most effectively diagnose and treat various types of TMD patients.
Audience: The author aims this book at general dentists, postgraduate residents, and students, but it is written at a level that makes it useful as a reference for other practitioners who may be involved with the management of patients with pain of the head, neck, and face. The author has been an educator and trained in temporomandibular joint and craniofacial pain.
Features: This comprehensive book covers all aspects of the diagnosis, management, and treatment of the TMD patient. It discusses evaluation, conditions and treatments, multidisciplinary treatment approaches, case scenarios, and clinical studies. The best features of the book are the focal points, quick consults, and technical tips. A unique feature is the inclusion of FAQs at the beginning of each chapter.
Assessment: The book is well written and provides a wealth of information on TMD. It is of high quality with excellent illustrations, pictures, and radiographs. It is a substantive contribution.
