The British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) national guidelines about the management of conditions of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) have been approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Its purpose is to be an useful tool available for surgeons and other medical colleagues, so they can also assist in the management of what might develop into a condition of chronic pain. The use of TMJ multidisciplinary teams should be encouraged to allow all treatment options for management to be discussed appropriately in selected cases, rather than unnecessarily progressing to surgical intervention. In this review we will cover the range of clinical situations of the TMJ and what are the treatment options available in each case according to the NICE and BAOMS guidelines. 
The mother’s oral health during pregnancy is related closely to the oral health of her newborn. Bad oral hygiene in pregnancy has been associated with various adverse effects, such as premature delivery, intrauterine growth restriction, gestational diabetes, and preeclampsia. Most professional authorities strongly advise pregnant women to continue their usual dental care during pregnancy. Various dental therapeutic aspects raise concern among pregnant women, such as the use of local anesthetics and radiography. However dental treatment of oral conditions is safe during pregnancy and must be managed at any time during this period.
