Temporomandibular joint pain and dysfunction

AUTHOR(S): Rajesh Gupta, Preety Gupta, Shivani Gupta, Tarun Gupta
ABSTRACT:Pain caused by temporomandibular disorders originates from either muscular or articular conditions, or both. Distinguishing the precise source of the pain is a significant diagnostic challenge to clinicians, and effective management hinges on establishing a correct diagnosis. This paper examines terminology and regional anatomy as it pertains to functional and dysfunctional states of the temporomandibular joint and muscles of mastication. A review of the path physiology of the most common disorders is provided. Trends in evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and research are presented.
