Can orthodontic therapy cause or treat TMD? 2008/09/22 23:53 Karma: 0  
Most recent meta-analysis examined literatures published from 1966 through September 2000 as regards to the relationship of orthodontics with TMD. The authors found 960 related articles but only 38 papers met inclusion criteria. The evidence shows no definite link between orthodontics and TMD. For now, definitive conclusion can not be drawn and the decision to employ orthodontics as a form of therapy for TMD still depends on clinician’s treatment philosophy, clinical experience, expert opinions and the present level of evidence.
