About this book


This book is a comprehensive, state of the art guide to the contemporary surgical treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) that will help to compensate for the frequent lack of experience and inadequate training among health professionals who encounter patients with jaw joint problems. The opening section discusses the evolution of modern surgical management of TMDs, TMD diagnosis for surgical candidates, as well as anatomic pathways. Surgical procedures are then described and illustrated, with detailed coverage of total temporomandibular joint replacement and also other procedures such as surgical arthroscopy, intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy, discectomy, and arthroplasty. The volume closes by examining the future of the field, including the use of bioengineered constructs. Complementary volumes are devoted to anatomy, pathophysiology, evaluation, and diagnosis and to the nonsurgical treatment of TMDs, respectively. Each volume will be of high value for the multidisciplinary team necessary for successful management of TMDs, including dentists, surgeons, primary care doctors, pain doctors, and allied health professionals.
