Magnetic resonance imaging of the temporomandibular joint in patients with skeletal open bite and subjects with no dentofacial abnormalities.


We aimed to record the prevalence of disc displacement and bony changes in the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) of patients with skeletal open bite. We studied 25 patients (50 joints) with skeletal open bite, 25 volunteers with no dentofacial abnormalities (50 joints), and 44 patients with closed lock and no dentofacial abnormalities (60 joints) using… (More)
