The term "temporomandibular disorders (TMD)" is a collective term used to describe a group of musculoskeletal conditions occurring in the temporomandibular region These conditions are characterized by pain in the muscles of mastication, the temporomandibular joint, or both. Typically, treatment of TMD is driven largely by the physical diagnosis alone, without addressing the personal or psychological impact of TMD pain or the patterns of coping used for TMD patients. Although TMD is regarded by many as a condition in which psychosocial factors influence the course of the disease, little attention has been paid to assessing how psychological or psychosocial factors influence treatment outcome and whether successful clinical outcome is associated with improved psychosocial function. In this article, we are discussing the various methods commonly used for biobehavioral assessment.
