Objectives The purpose of this research is to investigate recent clinical studies of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder in China. Methods We investigated recent clinical studies of Oriental Medicine therapies in traditional Chinese medical journals for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder through CNKI search. 20 clinical articles published from 2010 to 2015 were analyzed. This study examined the authors, published years, types of study designs, criteria for diagnosis and evaluation, periods, purposes of study and classified articles by techniques of treatment. Results Most of articles were classified as RCT. TMD was diagnosed by symptoms in a high proportion of articles. The criteria for evaluation that most frequently used were grading scale, but there was a lack of objectivity. The techniques of treatment were Tuina, acupuncture, herb medicine, electrotherapy, splint, PNF, congnitive behavior therapy, laser therapy, magnetic therapy. Conclusions In order to develop treatment of TMD in the Korean medicine, clinical studies for various therapies on a high level and cooperative studies between medical communities are needed.
