Evaluation of morphological variation of mandibular condyle using panoramic radiography
AUTHOR(S): Manjeet Singh and Syed Zameer Khurshaid
The current study was done to evaluate variations of TMJ condylar morphology using conventional panoramic radiograph.
Methods: This study comprised radiographic evaluation of 120 condylar heads of 60 patients. Then evaluate the mandibular condylar shape in 2D dimensional view (OPG).
Results: In this study, 60 pairs of condylar heads were evaluated. Out of them 55% were oval in shape, followed by bird beak (30%), diamond (12%) and least being crooked finger (3%).
Conclusion: Oval shape followed by bird beak type was found to be the most common in both genders with the condyle shape being symmetrical in about three quarters of the studied sample.
