practical advice about topics such as resting
the joint, soft diet, analgesics, and application
of heat pack to relax muscles.
The orthodontist can modify the treatment by reducing forces of orthodontic headgear, removing or lightening intermaxillary
elastics and eliminating occlusal interferences

treatment can be suspended and patient
should be referred to specialist for specific
treatment approaches (Table 1, p. 37). The

role of the orthodontist should continue
postoperatively by monitoring the patient
throughout retention phase.26

Conclusion
Orthodontists should be familiar with
pathophysiology of TMJ-related disorders,
latest evidence and guidelines. The British Orthodontic Society advice sheet with
regard to management of patients with
TMJ problems is highly recommended.
A thorough assessment and record keeping
are mandatory before and during orthodontic
treatment. ■
