Although many clinicians have reported positive results, procedural success has not been evaluated according to dislocation type. This study investigated the success of ABI on chronic TMJ dislocation with respect to dislocation frequency. ABI was used to treat 27 joints in 17 patients. The patients were divided into two groups based on dislocation frequency: (A… CONTINUE READING
