Abstract

Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ) ankylosis is an intracapsular union of the disc-condyle complex to the temporal articular surface that restricts mandibular movements including the fibrous adhesions or bony fusion between condyle, disc, glenoid fossa, and eminence. Clinically, patients have limited opening of the mouth, speech impairment, difficult with mastication, poor oral hygiene, facial asymmetry, and mandibular micrognathia. TMJ ankylosis results from trauma, infection, and inadequate surgical treatment of the TMJ region. It can be unilateral or bilateral. In this report, we present a case with follow up of true (fibro-osseous) ankylosis of left TMJ.
