Abstract

Comprehensive management of the temporomandibular joint surgical patient necessitates a thorough presurgical evaluation and definitive postsurgical management. The article provides an overview of TMJ surgical techniques, including arthroscopy, which has significantly decreased the need for open joint procedures. Early postsurgical intervention is recommended and specific therapeutic paradigms are outlined. Adjunctive technique to reduce inflammation, muscle guarding, edema, and collagen bonding are provided to facilitate manual joint mobilization and therapeutic exercise. Optimal success depends upon a strong professional relationship between the treating dentist, oral surgeon, and physical therapist.
