Evaluation of temporomandibular joint spaces and condylar position: A CBCT study
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sushmini Hegde and Dr. Yamuna Rani
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a unique joint. The dimension joint space is determined by the optimal Condylar position. Conventional radiographs cannot exactly show the relationship hence MRI and CT are being used frequently for imaging of TMJ. CBCT has recent advancement into technology especially in this field as helped to analyse the TMJ in more comphrehensive manner. The aim of this study is to assess the position of condyle in TMJ with patients of TMDs. The importance of relationship between condyle and glenoid fossa remains controversial. The CBCT utilizes less radiation and as higher resolution than normal CT. The position of condyle in the glenoid fossa is measured with high accuracy using CBCT technique for reconstruction and imaging of the TMJ. It provides reliable and accurate images. The study was designed to compare the condylar morphology in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with TMD s.
