TEMPOROMANDIBULAR DISORDERS: An Evidence-Based Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment
Daniel M. Laskin, DDS, MS, Charles S. Greene, DDS, William L. Hylander, DDS, PhD

This multidisciplinary text was written by 42 eminent researchers and clinicians. The 36 chapters link scientific concepts of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathology of the TMJ with specific diagnostic and treatment protocols. As with any multi-authored text, there are some inconsistencies. The final eight chapters address current evidence that supports treatments for TMD diagnoses. This section may be humbling to the seasoned clinician, who for years has successfully used modalities that at this time do not have strong evidence-based support.

THE TRIAD OF DENTISTRY
John R. Thompson, DDS

"Begun in 1942, . . . finished in 1992" This citation on the title page suggest that Dr. Thompson was an early keen observer of masticatory function and the problems that develop in the masticatory system. Students of the literature will recognize Dr. Thompson as having made several astute observations long before the dental profession began to take these disorders seriously.

SLEEP MEDICINE FOR DENTISTS: A PRACTICAL OVERVIEW
Gilles J Lavigne, Peter A Cistulli, Michael T Smith

With a clinical orientation, this text facilitates the dental practitioner's recognition, understanding and management of the overlapping disorders of sleep apnea, sleep bruxism, and chronic pain. The specific responsibilities of dental practitioners to routinely examine patients for the risk of sleep-disordered breathing and how to provide guidance and appropriate referrals to patient who report snoring, sleepiness, and morning headache is discussed. A detailed account of the physiology of sleep and a classification of sleep disorders set the groundwork for understanding the interplay between sleep breathing disorders, sleep bruxism and movement disorders and orofacial pain.
