Abstract

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most used joint of the body. Moreover, it is common knowledge that TMJ may show degenerative changes 10 years earlier than other joints. Recently, the use of arthroscopic surgery is revolutionizing the classic management of TMJ pathologies. In fact, the minimal invasiveness of this procedure allows faster results and fewer complications than other procedures. In this article, we present our arthroscopic technique. In this line, we would like to emphasize that we used this approach in different temporomandibular disorders such as anchored disk syndrome, habitual dislocation of TMJ, and internal derangement. Furthermore, we wish to underline that our efforts have been rewarded with great results.
