Summary of evidence-based systematic reviews of temporomandibular disorders

      Evidence-based care is the new buzzword in dentistry. Evidence-based dentistry has been defined by the American Dental Association as an approach to oral health care that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient’s oral and medical conditions and history, with the dentist’s clinical expertise and the patient’s treatment needs and preferences.

      Occlusal adjustment for treating and preventing temporomandibular disorders.
      provided further clarification of the evidence-based view: Evidence-based treatment is not black or white, absolutely right or absolutely wrong. It is the current position that an intelligent, unbiased person would reach after objectively evaluating the best available information on a given topic.
