Vitenskapelig tittel:
Etiology, characteristics and risk factors of temporomandibular joint ankylosis.

Prosjektbeskrivelse:
Normal function of the temporomandibular joint disease (TMJ) is essential for vital functions such as eating, talking, laughing, singing and kissing. Several studies have reported of severe impact of quality of life for patients with impaired and painful TMJ function. The diagnostic classification for TMJ surgery is debated as well as which surgical intervention is the most beneficial. A patient group largely devoid of research regarding pathogeneses and disease mechanisms is TMJ ankyloses. The etiology and epidemiology of this condition is unknown. The general objective of this project is to clarify the clinical and tissue characteristics, etiology and risk factors behind TMJ ankylosis. The project investigates severe TMJ conditions including fibrous and bony ankylosis. A controlled descriptive study with two arms, one retrospective (A) and one prospective (B), is planned for. This is the first systematic research approach to encompass the disabling condition TMJ ankylosis.
