What is currently happening in various research areas that will be clinically applicable to the management of temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) in the near future? Clearly, much of the information discovered about musculoskeletal disorders through the application of new research tools and innovative experimental designs can be directly or indirectly applied to the TMJ.
