Conclusion

This $5 ebook is a fairly good purchase if you have yet to really learn a lot on TMJ disorder.  It puts together most of the important things you need to know about the problem if you are suffering from it.  This spares you the trouble of having to find multiple sources elsewhere, such as online.  The only problem with this, of course, is that it does not really go as in-depth into the topic and its treatment as some others do.  There is little in this book that can be considered fresh on the topic, and it does not really offer much by way of a special treatment plan for those who have TMD.

TMJ: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, and Pain Relief for Your Jaw Pain

This is a pamphlet-type ebook outlining TMJ disorder and its symptoms.  Designed to help people better self-diagnose for this problem, it contains a simple guide to identifying temporomandibular joint issues.  It also contains information on quite a few remedies and coping mechanisms to try out before the sufferer turning to your dentist for help.

Features

  • 20-page ebook
  • Simple, pamphlet-style content outline
  • TMJ disorder diagnosis guide
  • Home remedies list for TMJ disorder pain relief

Pros

  • Despite being concise, this has educated and educational content
  • Clear outline of material
  • Good diagnosis section

Cons

  • Limited material
  • Really just meant as an overview/synopsis of longer, meatier reference books

This is a synopsis-type ebook that can provide you with quick and reliable information about TMJ disorder.  Its diagnosis section is especially helpful, as is the area where Dr. Iserto outlines the common treatments used by doctors for TMJ disorder sufferers.  However, that is how they remain: outlines.  This is a 20-page booklet costing $5, after all, and not really a reference book on the topic.  It also focuses on conventional medical remedies that cannot be performed by the sufferer alone in most cases.

Verdict

These TMJ disorder books have several things in common as well as differences.  The Iserto book is clearly the shortest, which means a lot of people will suspect it of having the least useful information, but this may not necessarily be true.  After all, being written by an actual dentist, it supplies such useful data as the precise medical names of treatments associated with temporomandibular joint disorder.  This can be very helpful to those who want to know about the conventional options as well, even if they cannot perform them without the aid of a medical professional.

Those who prefer a more holistic approach to the problem will gravitate more towards the Bradford and Carter ebooks, though.  Both are lengthier and have quite a bit more in terms of total information than the Iserto one.  Of the two, however, the Carter book is clearly superior.

This is because the Bradford book offers little by way of an articulated treatment plan for TMD.  Instead, it simply acts as a basic compendium of the most common knowledge about this disorder.  It is good for familiarizing yourself with it if you know nothing about it for the moment—but you can technically find all of the same data on the Web if you are willing to spend a little effort.

The Carter ebook, on the other hand, not only explains TMD but also supplies a total system of treatment for people who have it.  It contains far more actionable information than the Bradford ebook, which is what more people will care about at the end of the day.  Whether or not you actually act on that information, of course, is up to you.  What matters is that it is supplied.
