The prevalence of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) osteoarthrosis and synovitis was compared in 60 patients with painful chronic locking of the TMJ. Thirty patients had reduced molar occlusion, and as controls, 30 age-matched fully dentate patients were examined. Assessment comprised clinical examination (crepitation), tomography (sclerosis and erosions), and arthroscopy (cartilage involvement) of the TMJ. Arthroscopic signs of osteoarthrosis and synovitis were frequent in both groups. The highest… CONTINUE READING
