The results discussed in this study indicate that in spite of the widespread impact of TMJD and the multitude of potential interventions, clinicians have expended sparse attention to identify knowledge gaps in the TMJD literature. Our analysis suggests the following as potential topics for new high quality studies: TMJ internal derangement, TMJ ankylosis surgical treatment, TMJ electromyography, and surgical treatment of condylar fractures.
