Abstract

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation can occur during daily activities and negatively affect a patient's quality of life. Although both nonsurgical and surgical techniques have been used to treat recurrent TMJ dislocation, the former is not always successful and the latter, although having a high success rate, is invasive and requires hospitalization. Recently, autologous blood injection has been used to treat recurrent TMJ dislocation. However, this technique is not yet widely used in clinical practice. We designed this study to obtain further information as to efficacy, safety and stability of autologous blood injection for recurrent TMJ dislocation.
