Title: Efficacy of double needle cannula arthrocentesis technique for temporomandibular joint pain and chronic closed lock disorder


Arthrocentesis is a method of irrigation and lavage within the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) with a therapeutic substance. It is usually performed by dual puncture with two needles to the joint space. Several studies have shown that arthrocentesis of the upper compartment of the TMJ may be a highly effective method to restore normal maximal mouth opening and functioning. It is a minimally invasive chair side procedure for the patients with TMJ internal derangement, closed lock and severe pain. This case report evaluated the efficacy in the management of patients with TMJ chronic closed lock as an imperative procedure to relieve patients of their symptoms
