Dislocation of the jaw joint or temporomandibular joint (Jaw Joint or TMJ) occurs when one or both mandibular condyles are displaced in-front of the articular eminence. Autologous blood injection as a treatment for chronic recurrent TMJ dislocation was first reported by Brachmann, in 1964. There is a requirement for the clinicians to follow a set guideline for such injections. Based on the clinical outcome with such patients, a management protocol for autologous blood injection for chronic recurrent temporomandibular joint dislocation is proposed.
