Abstract

  Reconstruction of TMJ has always been a challenge to maxillofacial surgeons. There are considerable variation in the success rate of different treatment modalities. Costochondral grafts, ramus condylar unit distraction osteogenesis, gap arthroplasty have their own disadvantages and limitations. With the advent of total alloplastic joint replacement technique the maxillofacial surgeons are able to treat end stage temporomandibular joint diseases much more efficiently and with high level of precision.

Keywords: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ); Maxillofacial Surgeon; Costochondral Grafts
