Alloplastic total temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJR) is now considered to be a standard procedure for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) reconstruction. TMJR can improve mandibular mobility, restore the dental occlusion and improve facial aesthetics. The purpose was to assess the presence of intraoperative and post-operative complications, including the presence of post-operative chronic pain.
