Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
MedCenter TMJ of Houston, TX has recently announced that lead clinician Ronald C. Auvenshine DDS, PhD, PC is currently working with the American Equilibration Society’s Clinical Guidelines Committee on a new publication. The publication addresses the systematic review of treatment options for temporomandibular disorders (TMD).
TMD affects millions of people around the world. The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research says that estimates suggest approximately 10 million people suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems alone. These disorders can cause a variety of issues including pain, stiffness and limited mobility of the mandible and may affect the way that the upper and lower teeth come together.
Dr. Auvenshine noted that he has seen significant results when working with the American Equilibration Society in the past as a member of the Guidelines Committee. “We used evidence-based research to study TMD while I was on the committee to analyze over 1,700 papers on random controlled trials and studies. But that’s only half the battle. That research has to be put into action and used in human models.”
This latest collaboration between Dr. Auvenshine and the American Equilibration Society will serve as a valuable resource for members of the organization as they move forward in treating patients that are suffering from TMD.
