this book covers some biostatistical methods and several case studies useful to interpret and analyze dental research in the areas of orofacial pain and temporomandibular disorders. it will guide practitioners in these fields who would like to interpret research findings or find examples on the design of clinical investigations. after an introduction dealing with the basic issues, the central sections of the textbook are dedicated to the different types of investigations in sight of specific goals researchers may have. the final section contains a recent approach based on nonparametric permutation tests which can be adopted in many practical situations. the field of orofacial pain and temporomandibular disorders is emerging as one of the most critical areas of clinical research in dentistry. due to the complexity of clinical pictures, the multifactorial etiology, and the importance of psychosocial factors in all aspects of the tmd practice, clinicians often find it hard to appraise their modus operandi, and researchers must constantly increase their knowledge in epidemiology and medical statistics. indeed, proper methodological designs are fundamental to reaching high levels of internal and external validity of findings in this specific area.
current mainstream treatments for temporomandibular disorders (tmds) are mainly conservative therapies. however, these conservative treatments are symptomatic treatments, not causal treatments. therefore, the patients with severe symptoms have not been completely relieved.
evidence-based occlusal management for temporomandibular disorders is a concise e-lecture which covers the following points:
1. when do the signs or symptoms of tmd emerge
2. should the signs or symptoms be left untreated
3. when should the treatment start
4. how should the occlusal discrepancy be examined
5. how should occlusion at the bpop (bite plate-induced occlusal position) (muscular contact position) be equilibrated
the e-lecture also demonstrates a positive outcome using causal treatment based on occlusal equilibration in the bpop based on the evidence of a relationship between occlusal discrepancy and tmd. therefore, this e-book shares insightful, evidence-based clinical data with interested readers such as dental clinicians and researchers around the world.
pain, especially chronic pain, is a major health care problem, a fact that has precipitated a recent dramatic expansion in pain-related research efforts. this revised edition of dr welden bell’s classic text has been updated to incorporate the latest findings from these studies, including advanced understanding of the neurophysiology and central processing of pain and the resulting changes to diagnostic, classification, and treatment guidelines. to assist clinicians in the difficult and often complicated task of managing patients suffering from oral and facial pain, this textbook provides documented information concerning pain and pain behavior so that one may better understand what pain is, how it behaves, and how it might best be managed; develops a useful classification of orofacial pain disorders; offers practical diagnostic criteria by which the different orofacial pain disorders can be identified on a clinical level; and suggests guidelines for the effective management of patients who suffer from pain in the region of the mouth and face. the concepts and techniques discussed are supplemented with case reports as well as new, full-color photographs and illustrations to help the clinician better understand orofacial pain disorders and how to treat them effectively.
the aaop guidelines for assessment, diagnosis, and management of orofacial pain is an invaluable resource for all health care professionals who evaluate and treat patients with orofacial pain and face the daunting task of “keeping up with the literature” in the rapidly emerging arena of pain management in clinical practice. this new edition continues to emphasize evidence-based knowledge and, for the first time, offers a summary of key points at the end of each chapter to reinforce reader understanding. other important changes include an entirely new chapter on sleep and its relationship to pain and well-being; new imaging guidelines for the diagnosis of headache, tmd, and neuropathic pain; a new section on dysesthesias related to neuropathic pain; comprehensive descriptions of sunct/suna in the chapter devoted to primary headache disorders; and recommendations for quantitative sensory testing, narcotic agreement, and brief screening questionnaires used in patient assessment. most important, the differential diagnosis and tmd chapters reflect the recommendations of the long-awaited rdc/tmd taxonomy, which will have a significant impact on clinical practice.
this totally new book is focused on answering a single broad question: what is currently happening in various research areas that will be clinically applicable to the management of temporomandibular disorders (tmds) in the near future clearly, much of the information discovered about musculoskeletal disorders through the application of new research tools and innovative experimental designs can be directly or indirectly applied to the tmj. however, many dental clinicians are unaware of this type of information because it is presented mainly in medical publications or nonclinical scientific journals. this book bridges the gap for the clinician, applying the latest scientific research to the clinical treatment of tmds, with focus on the anatomy, biochemistry, neurophysiology, and psychology of the common disorders. each chapter discusses present knowledge in the particular field before explaining how it may apply to the diagnosis and treatment of tmd patients. in addition, every chapter provides an overview of new research in the field and its potential for changing future patient care. covering such clinically relevant topics as the relation of abnormal joint function to joint pathology, the prediction of treatment responsiveness, how sleep disorders affect tmj and facial pain, the role of comorbid conditions in pain response and management, and the evolving field of pharmacotherapeutics, this book is sure to transform the way clinicians think about tmds and how they approach tmd treatment.
this revised and expanded edition highlights the importance of understanding the biologic and psychologic pain mechanisms to prepare clinicians who treat patients presenting with a variety of pain symptoms. in addition to presenting objective definitions and descriptions of pain and its physical effects, the authors include evidence-based research on how the pain experience may be influenced by genetics, gender, or individual psychosocial and health histories. extending well beyond basic toothache and tmds, this book covers pathologic conditions of surrounding orofacial structures and nonodontogenic pain disorders that may manifest as orofacial pain as well, including new chapters on headache and orofacial pain–related movement disorders. chapters on management guide clinicians on how to develop practical and compassionate treatment plans based on logical evaluation methods, accurate diagnosis, and appropriate pharmacologic treatment, or how to decide when referral to other health care providers is warranted. a series of case studies demonstrates the effective application of this information to clinical situations.
completely revised and updated, this new version of the aaop guidelines educates readers on the procedures of evidence-based assessment, diagnosis, and management of orofacial pain conditions based on the latest scientific knowledge. while the structure of the previous version has been maintained, this book offers evidence-based concepts where available and reflects many significant changes in the field of orofacial pain. for example, an entire chapter is now devoted to cervical disorders to emphasize the close relationships between some orofacial pain disorders and cervical pain disorders and to cast greater attention on their differences and similarities. because they constitute a major part of orofacial pain and affect so many, temporomandibular disorders are the primary topic of several chapters as well as a major focus of the chapter of classification. other important topics covered in detail include neuropathic pain conditions, odontogenic pain, and mucogingival disorders. this long-awaited edition arms clinicians with new insights and procedures for assessing, diagnosing, and managing patients who present with symptoms of orofacial pain.
updated to reflect the latest research in orofacial pain, this revised edition of dr welden bell’s classic text is designed to assist the practicing dentist in managing orofacial pain disorders, from diagnosis to treatment selection. it presents an updated classification system for orofacial pain disorders, especially in the complicated area of neuropathic pain conditions, and describes the differential diagnostic and therapeutic considerations for each classification. many new photographs illustrate the concepts and techniques that are discussed, and a new section on injection techniques for the diagnosis and management of orofacial pain has been added. the book also includes 35 case reports to help the clinician better understand orofacial pain disorders and how to treat them effectively.
adopts a clinical approach to understanding occlusion and demystifies it for dentists and students. an accompanying narrated dvd provides stunning 3-d animations that clarify the effects of jaw movement. comprehensive clinical videos demonstrate the process of investigating and managing real-life occlusal problems.

british dental journal“the major point of interest to the reader is that the book is clearly and distinctly organized in the manner in which a general dental practitioner would assess treat, and manage a patient with tmd in his or her dental office.the author has demonstrated in this book a thorough understanding of tmd and treatment approaches for the dental practitioner. what makes the book unique is the systematically organized approach with which the chapters are presented. the approach, along with a straightforward writing style, makes the book very easy to read and understand. in addition, there are numerous illustration and figures to assist the reader; the printing and binding are of a high quality.
this book is one of the most straightforward, systematic approaches to understanding and treating tmd that i have read. i found it easy to read and understand and believe it would be so for the general dental practitioner.
the book would be an excellent text for dental students studying tmd and is essential for postgraduate programs, especially aegd and gpr programs. it is a must reference for all general dental practitioners to have in their practice. i highly recommend the book without reservations.”

this is the best tmd book i have ever read!, march 11, 2005
it is an outstanding evidence-based clinical guide explicitly recommending how dentists can diagnose and best treat the multitude of variances we see among tmd patients. general dentists can proficiently treat the great majority of tmd patients and dr. wright warns to consider referral for the specific situations in which the patient’s condition is beyond most general dentist’s expertise. i highly recommend all general dentists read this book!
very handy, september 13, 2005
very well organized, such that finding information is very easy. the content is very applicable and useful. four starts just because i find the “quick consult” points unnecessary as the text is quite well put together and the information is easy to find – just picky, i guess.

occlusion and clinical practice, june 1, 2009
it is a good book when i just touching the “foreword”. as its mention, it is an elegant, carefully crafted textbook. i will keep on reading until the end. occlusion is a very special topic to dentistry. few books talk about this topic. that means it is attractive, or otherwise you will feel boring of reading it.
