BACKGROUND Temporomandibular joint disorders are important oral health problems, reducing the quality of life of sufferers. [] Key MethodSEARCH STRATEGY The Cochrane Oral Health Group's Trials Register (to August 2009), CENTRAL (The Cochrane Library 2009, Issue 3), MEDLINE (1950 to August 2009), EMBASE (1980 to August 2009), OpenSIGLE (to August 2009), CBMdisc (1981 to 2007 (in Chinese)) and Chinese Medical Library were searched.

Arthroscopy for temporomandibular disorders.
TLDR
To assess the effectiveness of arthroscopy for the management of signs and symptoms in patients with TMDs, seven randomized controlled clinical trials of Arthroscopic and nonsurgical treatments were included.
Interventions for the management of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis.
TLDR
A not dissimilar degree of effectiveness with intra-articular injections consisting of either sodium hyaluronate or corticosteroid preparations, and an equivalent pain reduction with diclofenac sodium as compared with occlusal splints is indicated.
Pharmacological interventions for pain in patients with temporomandibular disorders.
TLDR
There is insufficient evidence to support or not support the effectiveness of the reported drugs for the management of pain due to TMD, and there is a need for high quality RCTs to derive evidence ofThe effectiveness of pharmacological interventions to treat pain associated with TMD.
WITHDRAWN: Orthodontics for treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
TLDR
There are insufficient research data on which to base clinical practice on the relationship of active orthodontic intervention and TMD, and there is an urgent need for high quality randomised controlled trials in this area of orthodentic practice.

Review of Current Practice for Temporomandibular Joint Meniscopexy Surgery
TLDR
Although there is evidence to show improvement in functional outcomes associated with Meniscopexy as a means of TMD management, there remains to be a lack of high-level evidence to further support this.
Management of the temporomandibular joint in inflammatory arthritis: Involvement of surgical procedures.
TLDR
The peculiarities of TMJ disease secondary to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis are highlighted and how to best manage these ailments is highlighted, which should help guide when referral to a specialist TMJ surgeon is appropriate.
Artrocentesis de la articulación temporomandibular y corticoides. Revisión de la literatura
TLDR
According to this review, AC by itself is sufficient to obtain good results in the treatment of TMJ disorders, and the use of intra-articular CS associated with AC does not provide benefits compared to performing AC alone and results in similar findings to other terapeutic drugs.
Therapeutic Modalities for Temporomandibular Joint Arthrosis in the Speciality of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
TLDR
The effectiveness of self-mouth opening exercises, internal use of NSAIDs, and acupuncture for temporomandibular arthrosis was revealed and the effectiveness of homogeneity and validity of research design was revealed.
Lavage therapy versus nonsurgical therapy for the treatment of arthralgia of the temporomandibular joint: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
The results suggest that lavage of the TMJ may be slightly more effective than nonsurgical treatment for pain reduction, however, this difference is not likely to be clinically relevant.

TLDR
Although patients benefitted from both techniques, arthrocentesis with injection of SH seemed to be superior to arthrocence alone, while reducing TMJ pain and noise.

TLDR
The landmark observation that lysis and lavage in only the upper compartment of the TMJ produce successful clinical results without repositioning the disc has prompted clinicians to question the importance of disc position as a significant factor in the etiology of TMJ pain dysfunction.
