Inferior joint space arthrography and measurements of the condylar path provide scientific documentation of derangement of the TMJ disc and condyle. These derangements are described as an anterior displacement of the disk associated with posterior-superior displacement of the condyle when the teeth are closed into the intercuspal position. Clinical studies demonstrate that approximately 70% of a TMJ patient population present with some type or stage of these derangements. These observations… CONTINUE READING
