OBJECTIVES To explore the possibility of using 2-dimensional image assessments in combination with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in patients with temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJOA) to enhance the clinical significance and applicability of the CBCT findings on TMJOA changes. STUDY DESIGN Fifty-two patients with unilateral TMJOA and 40 healthy adults who had undergone CBCT in preparation for orthodontic treatment were selected for this study. Temporomandibular joint images… CONTINUE READING
