There are a number of contemporary clinical and research journal articles, chapters and books that address the past and present tools used for the diagnosis and management of temporomandibular joint disorders. Hopefully, the profession has learned enough about past diagnostic and management foibles and failures from that literature so that practitioners do not repeat them and can move on to a more enlightened future.
