Various approach strategies have been followed for management of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dislocation. In this study, a total of 12 patients (21 TM joints) with chronic recurrent TMJ dislocations were managed surgically by articular eminectomy due to unsatisfactory outcomes of conservative management methods. An improvement in pain, range of jaw movements and maximal mouth opening was achieved in 10 patients (83.3%).
