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.
Anyway, access to the contents of the page is still available to other researchers, professionals in the field and to those interested in the research that I develop.
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 Clinica 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 neuromuscular phisiologic reabilitation of the second phase of treatment, after the TMJ treatment, were also included.
The TMJ Study and Investigation Page completed in the month of December, three years of life.
I remembered to celebrate on the first anniversary of the Page.
In the middle of the work with patients, teaching and publications I did not remember to celebrate the second year.
I want to celebrate these three years with you.
With this project, we have a place in the Internet that presents a line of work known as neuromuscular physiologic dentistry, which takes into account the whole body system. It is an area which acts on posture, mandibular functioning and considers the entire body system.
In order to do that, the neuromuscular physiologic dentistry aims to establish, in the patient, a position that is based on a harmonious relation between the muscles, the teeth, and the temporomandibular joints.
In the publication of this year’s end I have chosen the most significant images of all these years of publications, with direct links to each of the original publications.
At the end of this publication I placed the links of the publications of the first year of this page.
The TMJ Study and Investigation Page has grown tremendously and continues to receive visitors from all over the world.
