At December 2014 I started the Project TMJ Study and Investigation Page. At first, all its content was offered in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish. Due to the analysis of the webpage access statistics, at March 2015 I decided to offer the content solely in Portuguese and English.
Nowadays, the medicine based on evidence is hierarchically stratified from top to bottom where in the base of the pyramid we find the clinic cases, which are rarely seen as evidence. The TMJ Study and Investigation Page had, in its conception, the purpose of posting the clinic cases, which were carefully published with the documentation related to each of the patients treated at Clínica MY with pain complaints, dysfunction and TMJ pathology.
The proposition was of presenting these clinic cases and concepts in order share them, offering free access to the content along images, surface electromyographies, computerized kinesiography, scanned before and after the therapeutic process. Cases of tridimentional orthodontics and neurophisiologic reabilitation of the second phase of treatment, after the TMJ treatment, were also included.
The TMJ Study and Investigation Page is completing, in this month of December, one year since it started, and I want to celebrate its anniversary with you. With this project, we have a place in the Internet that presents a line of work known as neurophysiologic dentistry, which takes into account the whole body system. It is an area that also operates regarding the posture and the mandibular functioning. In order to do that, the physiologic dentistry aims to establish, in the patient, a position that is based on a harmonious relation between the muscles, the teeth, and the temporolandibular joints.
In the publication of the end of this year I have chosen the most significant images of the whole year of publications, with their direct links to each one of the originals publications.
Joint Decompression in a Neurophysiological Mandibular Rest Position Promotes a Positive Remodeling in a Degenerative Process of a Teenager Temporomandibular Joint
Structural modifications of the mandibular condylar process as one of the sequels of traumatism in infancy.

I want to thank my family that is always at my side in each one of the projects, I also want to thank my friends, that from Brazil and from many places of the world, supported and support this project. Last, but not least, I want to thank my colleagues and patients that often write, encouraging and thanking the existence of this virtual place.
By closing, in this moment, the annual analysis and the perspective for the year that follows, I therefore thank the readers of all places in the world that follow the TMJ Study and Investigation Page. It is a privilege to count with your visits.
With the best votes for 2016, and wishing for a year of peace, health, love and happiness for all.
