OBJECTIVE To assess changes in hyoid, tongue, pharyngeal airway, and head posture in patients who had mandibular setback surgery by intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) and to investigate the influence of LeFort I osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion were evaluated. All patients had mandibular setback(More)
Synovial chondromatosis is a benign disease that rarely affects the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It can be seen commonly in the superior joint space and presents with various signs and symptoms according to the stage of progression. Sometimes it presents as a large swelling in the preauricular area with or without cranial extension, and the clinical and(More)
AIMS To determine the characteristic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). METHODS MRI was carried out in 11 cases of synovial chondromatosis of the TMJ, which had been confirmed surgically and histologically. RESULTS Severe bony changes were not apparent. One or more hypointensive(More)
J Korean Assoc Oral Maxillofac Surg 2012;38:326-31) Objectives: Stress may have an impact on treatment types that patients receive for temporomandibular disorders (TMDs). This study sought to investigate the relationship between the stress index and type of treatments in patients with TMD. Materials and Methods: The psychosocial well-being index-short form(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the features of synovial fluid, the shape of the disk, and the presence of disk displacement without reduction (DDsR) of the temporomandibular joint. STUDY DESIGN A total of 612 bilateral temporomandibular magnetic resonance images of 306 patients were reviewed. The status of the joint was categorized(More)
Alloplastic total replacement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) was developed in recent decades. In some conditions, previous studies suggested the rationale behind alloplastic TMJ replacement rather than reconstruction with autogenous grafts. Currently, three prosthetic products are available and approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Among(More)
Coronoid process hyperplasia is a rare condition that causes mouth opening limitation, otherwise known as trismus. The elongated coronoid processes impinge on the medial surfaces of the zygomatic arches when opening the mouth, which limits movement of the mandible and leads to trismus. Patients with trismus due to coronoid process hyperplasia do not have(More)
Though growth factors allow tissue regeneration, the trade-off between their effectiveness and adverse effects limits clinical application. The key issues in current growth factor therapy largely derive from initial burst pharmacokinetics, rapid clearance, and proteolytic cleavage resulting in clinical ineffectiveness and diverse complications. While a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the volume and position of the temporomandibular joint structures, specifically the glenoid fossa and the condylar head, in patients with facial asymmetry. STUDY DESIGN Fifty-six adult patients were divided into two groups-asymmetry group and control group-based on the severity of the mandibular asymmetry, as seen on their(More)
This case report demonstrates an unnecessary endodontic treatment of teeth with florid cemento-osseous dysplasia (FCOD) due to a misdiagnosis as periapical pathosis and emphasizes the importance of correct diagnosis to avoid unnecessary treatment. A 30-year-old woman was referred to our institution for apicoectomies of the mandibular left canine and both(More)
