How do I know if I have idiopathic condylar resorption?
The signs of condylar resorption are: Facial imbalance (receding chin), Smaller airway (snoring, apnea) and. Bite disturbances (anterior open bite, posterior tooth wear and muscle pain).
How do I know if I have condylar hyperplasia?
Condylar hyperplasia (CH) is a bone disease characterized by the increased development of one mandibular condyle. It regularly presents as an active growth with facial asymmetry generally without pain. Statistically it affects more women in adolescence, although it does not discriminate by age or gender.
How rare is condylar hyperplasia?
It is estimated that about 30% of people with facial asymmetry express condylar hyperplasia.
How do you fix condylar hyperplasia?
Treatment usually includes condylectomy during the period of active growth. If growth has stopped, orthodontics and surgical mandibular repositioning are indicated. If the height of the mandibular body is greatly increased, facial symmetry can be further improved by reducing the inferior border of the mandible.
How do you stop idiopathic condylar resorption?
Anti-inflammatory medication can be used to slow the resorption process. Arthrocentesis, and arthroscopic surgery are also sometimes used to treat disc displacement and other symptoms. The condition can only be fully addressed with total removal of the diseased condyles.
How common is condylar resorption?
The average presurgical rate of condylar resorption was 1.5 mm per year, indicating a slow but progressive disease process that caused the mandible to become more retruded at a rate of approximately 2.5 mm per year. The occlusal plane angle increased at a rate of 2° per year.
Can condylar hyperplasia be fixed?
To correct condylar hyperplasia, it is necessary to consider its status. In the inactive status, conventional orthognathic surgery can be recommended without condylectomy. However, in the active status, active growth potential of the affected condyle should be removed.
How do you fix Hemimandibular hyperplasia?
We conclude that condylectomy can correct hemimandibular hyperplasia, even in patients with active condylar growth, by removing the underlying disease.
Is condylar hyperplasia genetic?
The condylar hyperplasia in this family indicates that mandibular condylar hyperplasias could be genetic in origin, possibly Y-linked or autosomal dominant. Condylar hyperplasia is an uncommon malformation of the mandible involving change in the size and morphology of the condylar neck and head.
When does condylar hyperplasia stop?
True condylar hyperplasia develops between puberty and the cessation of growth at age 18-25.
How do you fix condylar resorption?
The condition can only be fully addressed with total removal of the diseased condyles. The condyles are replaced with a temporomandibular joint total joint replacement (TJR) device, often in conjunction with orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. The device restores lost ramus height, providing a stable occlusion.
How do you treat idiopathic condylar resorption?
Treatments performed after idiopathic condylar resorption has stopped
- Bilateral sagittal-split osteotomy. This procedure involves splitting the mandible with bilateral sagittal cuts and re-orienting the mandibular body to achieve full occlusion.
- Orthodontic treatment.
- Prosthodontic treatment.
