Although the adverse effects due to the use of bisphosphonates, such as bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw, are reported previously, whether adverse events of the temporomandibular joint related with bisphosphonate treatment have been still unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of BP treatment on the condylar tissues of the temporomandibular joint due to fibrous cartilage, hyaline cartilage and bone-specific differences in rat animal models.

Deformation of the mandibular condyle can be associated with anterior disk displacement (ADD) or involvement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) by juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Diagnostic dif...

It has been suggested that degenerative conditions of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), such as osteoarthritis (OA) and progressive condylar resorption, are caused by multiple etiological factors, su...
To analyze the radiological characteristics and classifications of the cyst-like lesion of condyle in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) by cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
We evaluated the surgical outcomes in 16 patients with long-standing dislocation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ): eight men and eight women, mean (range) age 72 (21-94) years. They all had multip...

A plate of fibrous tissue that divides the temporomandibular joint into an upper and lower cavity. The disk is attached to the articular capsule and moves forward with the condyle in free opening and protrusion. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p92)

A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
