Temporomandibular Joint ankylosis is the condition where in the mandibular condyle fuses with the temporal bone (cranial base), thereby resulting in reduced mouth opening. TMJ ankylosis more commonly affect the younger or the pediatric age group. The causes for it can be ear infection, birth trauma, trauma during infancy or childhood or even congenital.
In adults, the most common reason for TMJ Ankylosis is untreated or undetected mandibular condylar fracture. If the mandibular condyle fracture goes undetected or is not treated in a proper manner, it causes unorganised healing of the fracture fragments and frequently leads to the union of mandibular bone with the temporal bone of the cranium. This union initially is in fibrous form and gradually progresses to a more rigid bony ankylosis.
TMJ is a very unique joint as it helps us to carry out various important functions like chewing our food, and speech. A life with a closed mouth for years can be very debilitating and no individual should be forced to live like that. Best way to manage such condition is detection at the earliest stage possible and rendering proper treatment!
Your treatment plan is designed for steady progress, with every phase promptly implemented.
