Abstract

Professionals in Dentistry often read in Journals and recurrently listen in courses "The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a very complex joint, therefore, difficult to treat, so better not get involved but prescribe dental splint for your patient…". Well, I dare then to say the contrary, TMJ is one of the anatomically most studied and well-described joint of the human body and because it is part of the mandible, the presence or absence of teeth plays a minor but central role in its function. Moreover, medical conditions certainly are totally involved in the pathophysiology of diseases affecting this structure.
