Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) is a common cause of chronic facial pain that is often treated successfully without operation, but when no improvement is seen arthroscopy may be considered as a therapeutic and diagnostic tool. We prospectively assessed the outcome of 115 arthroscopic procedures to assess the effectiveness and reliability of a 1.2mm(More)
Patients who fail to respond to routine conservative measures to treat pain, restriction, and locking in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) may have therapeutic arthroscopy or arthrocentesis, both of which are associated with symptomatic improvement in 86% of patients. To our knowledge there are no current data on improvements in mouth opening and lateral(More)
The use of smartphones has soared among healthcare professionals in recent years, with estimated figures reporting that the majority of clinicians own and use smartphones in the workplace. Smartphones allow the clinician to carry textbooks in their pocket, write documents on the move and use email and internet to enhance productivity and clinical decision(More)
INTRODUCTION We describe the case of a 31-year-old lady who presented in 1999 with significant temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction following a previous vertical subsigmoid osteotomy. The previous surgery had displaced both condyles from their glenoid fossae, and a persistent malocclusion resulted. Despite initial conservative management, both condyles(More)
Costochondral grafts are used to replace the mandibular condyle in cases of TMJ ankylosis, and are generally viewed as a gold standard for autogenous reconstruction of the mandibular condyle (Güven, 2000; Posnick and Goldstein, 1993 [1,2]). We report a case where overgrowth of costochondral grafts is seen, resulting in asymmetric mandibular growth and(More)
Patients with dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) commonly present to oral and maxillofacial departments and are increasingly being managed by a subspecialist group of surgeons. We review the outcomes of patients attending a specialist TMJ multidisciplinary team (MDT) clinic. All patients are simultaneously reviewed by a consultant oral and(More)
Increasingly the management of TMJ pathology is becoming a subspecialist interest. The number of patients having TMJ joint replacement had steadily increased over the last decade and there is now NICE guidance on this matter. Whilst the evidence of the management of TMJ disease is limited and there are few randomised controlled trials, the incidence of TMJ(More)
