Abstract

Although counselling- and self-management-based therapies could be a conservative low-cost and beneficial treatment alternative for treating TMD, with good results for the relief and control of TMD signs and symptoms by improving psychological domains and potentially reducing harmful behaviours, the evidence remains unclear due to the small number of controlled and randomised well-designed clinical trials. Thus, further studies with higher level of evidence and more representative samples should be conducted to validate the performance of this treatment modality.
