ABSTRACT

Temporomandibularmandibular ankylosis also known as the craniomandibular joint (CMJ) ankylosis is a Greek terminology that means “stiff joint”. It is most commonly associated with trauma and to a lesser extent middle ear infections. The condition is debilitating with regard to nutrition, mantainance of oral hygiene, growth and the overall psychology state of the patient. In this paper we present preliminary results of an ongoing study to assess the clinical parameters, for example, maximum inter incisal opening (MIO) and chin deviation (CD) of patients with CMJ ankylosis receiving early surgical intervention.
