This patient sustained a Road Traffic Accident and come to Dr. Richardson’s dental and Craniofacial Hospital with lot of hope. He reported difficulties like inability to open wide and chew food, and we recommended a TMJ surgery.
We identified fractures in the mandible in two places by taking a Cone Beam CT scan.
- The right body of the mandible
- The left TMJ or Temporomandibular joint or the jaw joint.
An excellent team headed by Dr. Sunil Richardson did Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF). And he was absolutely fine in two days – post TMJ surgery .
