The years after TMD was "discovered" have caused almost an earthquake in the dental diaspora in which the diagnoses have changed ideas and definitions, the classifications have gone into a strange underworld of options, and the treatment possibilities are diverse; from the most simple, to the most radical. 


The evidence however has been scant and if present, a lot has been disputed. Specialists from Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontics, Prosthodontics, Osteopathy, Physiotherapists, Pain Management Professionals and dabblers in Holistic Medicine have injected their expertise into these most unfortunate patients to which a solution is yet to be standardised.


This 1.5 hr lecture endeavours to develop the dental surgeons' thinking on the way in which we "treat" TMD. The fundamental functionality of the most complex joint in the human body is extrapolated, the various options of treatment are scrutinised, including the options in the current literature and the future of this quandary is predicted


A scientific and evidence based proposed lecture on the enigma which is TMD.

  • Understanding the pathophysiology of TMD
  • Classifications and Diagnoses
  • Review the past treatment options
  • Arguments for and against the various options
  • Evidence based review 
  • Current consensus and evaluation of future options
