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.
