Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The interrelation between Orthodontics and Temporomandibular Disfunctions(TMD) has been always a theme of study present in the orthodontic literature. The role of the orthodontic treatment in prevention, cure and development of TMD still remains as a controversial subject. The post-graduation courses in Orthodontics, however, don’t have a defined standard on the minimum hours dedicated to the subject, where can exist a great variation in the orthodontists formation in this field of knowledge. The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the attitudes and beliefs of orthodontists regarding TMD and to analyze in the interviewees opinion if there is a demand for specialists in Temporomandibular Disfunctions and Orofacial Pain, by means of use of a questionnaire sent through electronic mail to the participants of this survey. The results are presented to the light of the most recent and validated articles pertinent to the theme and also the use of the Evidence-Based Dentistry (EBD) as a way for professionals acquire self-sufficiency in the critical appraisal of the available literature.
