Materials and Method: This study was written in accordance with PRISMA guidelines, The PICO format is used to show clinical questions with obvious inclusion criteria. This systematic review search uses an "myofascial of the MeSH browser " and, "trigger points", "myospasms", "myofascial pain dysfunction syndrome", "facial myalgia", and "taut bands". and limited by "Human", "English". An extensive search of literature was performed on database such as MEDLINE, PubMed and Google Scholar.

A third reviewer arbitrated in the case of discrepancy of reviewers? opinion following discussion. Result: The result obtained is that the three interventions that is occlusal, pharmacological and physiotherapy are effective in treatment of patient with mpds. Conclusion: The result obtained is that the three interventions are effective in treatment of patient with mpds but further studies should be conducted with large sample size and exclusive comparison between drug, occlusal therapy and physical therapy.
