Abstract

Disc-repositioning splints are routinely used in the treatment of anteriorly displaced discs. The rationale of these appliances is to direct the mandibular condyle anteriorly in the glenoid fossa and to recapture the disc onto the condyle. The stability of disc recapture depends on reestablishment of the occlusion and the adaptive capabilities of the temporomandibular joint. It could therefore be suggested that treatment success is potentially higher in the active growth period. In this case report, partial disc recapture was observed on magnetic resonance images after application of a maxillary disc-repositioning appliance. Orthodontic treatment was applied for the retention of disc recapture.
