- Are there different types of TMJ prosthesis?
- Are there any advantages of a stock prothesis?
- How exactly does the planning and surgery work?
- What are the risks of such an operation?
- Does a TMJ prosthesis last forever?
- Are there factors that tend to reduce the success rate of a temporomandibular joint prosthesis?
