Abnormal in- and out alterations in the anatomical relations of the temporomandibular joint are referred as temporomandibular joint disorders. The incidence of temporomandibular joint disorders is high in the population. Pain is the most common symptom, while few or more symptoms may be involved in the disease process. There are various factors that play a role in disease progress and most frequently it is a combination of them. There are various branches in medical and dental sciences that can have a profound treatment plan which differs from each other in every aspect; one can hardly address an ideal method. The present study aims to underline the need for treatment, as well as the right approach for the treatment.
