Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Gabapentin may reduce TMJ pain by about 30% over placebo, while NSAIDs have demonstrated inconsistent effects (SOR: C, low-quality RCTs). Corticosteroid and sodium hyaluronate injections have similar short-term short outcomes (although the effect versus placebo is unknown), but sodium hyaluronate may be better at 6 months (SOR: C, systematic review with conflicting lowquality RCTs).
