Mandibular distraction osteogenesis in children with TMJ ankylosis: A literature review
AUTHOR(S): Janani Kandamani
ABSTRACT:Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis leads to a significant amount of facial deformity in the affected individuals. Osteogenic distraction is one of the treatments that can treat ankylosis in children with success. However, the successful treatment of children with TMJ ankylosis with dentofacial deformities is slow and prolonged, and the earlier it is initiated, the greater the success of treatment completion, always depending on the joint work of a multidisciplinary team, as well as family support and patient collaboration. This review aims to find a scientific evidence based background for the mandibular distraction osteogenesis in treatment of temporomandibular ankylosis.
