Temporomandibular disorders are considered as the main source of pain in the head and neck region which is of non- dental in origin. Its etiology is multifactorial and its pathogenesis has not been completely understood. The interest in the relationship between occlusal factors, orthodontic treatment and TMD has increased over the years. Hence the aim of this article is to review ten association of TMD and orthodontics from the available literature.

Any treatment procedure that eliminates or reduces the severity of the developing malocclusion is referred as interceptive orthodontic treatment.By initiating orthodontic and orthopaedic treatment at an younger age the need for complex orthodontic treatment involving multiple extractions and orthognathic surgery is presumably reduced.The goals of early treatment involve correction of skeletal,dental and muscular abnormalities to correct the oral environment before completion of growth and development. Prompt interventions are advised for predisposing conditions that may potentially develop a malocclusion.This review highlights various clinical situations and its effective interceptive management modalities.

Most of the signs of ageing can be related to volume loss. Dermal fillers are substances which can be injected beneath the skin, that helps restore the lost volume. They are gel like in consistency.1 Patients seeking orthodontic therapy often also present with adjuvant soft tissue deformities. The soft tissue deformity caused by an underlying skeletal or dental deformity will be self-corrected by orthognathic and/or orthodontic treatment. The inherent soft tissue deformities like decreased lip length, increased or decreased lip thickness, inadequate vermillion show, can be addressed by injecting dermal fillers, Botulinum Toxin A and cosmetic surgical soft tissue procedures.

Class III malocclusion is a malocclusion that is Very easy to identify but is often difficult to treat. So a sucessful treatment plan for correcting class III malocclusion depends on an accurate assesment and diagnosis. So this article is an overview of various methods of assessing class III malocclusion and the management of the same.
