A detailed clinical examination of the parts of the temporomandibular joint can be carried out by means of magnetic resonance imaging. The aim of this study was to examine, with the use of magnetic resonance imaging, the mandibular condyle-disc-fossa relationship in subjects with Class II Division 1 malocclusions who were treated with the Andresen activator. The sample consisted of 18 subjects with Class II Division 1 malocclusion, 9 treated with the Andresen activator and 9 control subjects… CONTINUE READING
