A comparison of the outcomes following intra-articular steroid injection alone or arthrocentesis alone in the management of internal derangement of the temporomandibular joint.

The two types of treatment strategies may be undertaken to counter temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, namely conservative management and surgical intervention. Surgical management can be classified into invasive open methods and minimally invasive procedures such as arthrocentesis, intra-articular steroid injection, and arthroscopy.
