  • The range of dysfunction varies from a reciprocal click of the joint to intermittent locking or "catching" of the joint to a "closed lock" (anterior displacement of the disk without reduction). Similarly the teatment approaches vary depending on the symptoms and degree of dysfunction. Treatment regimens can include medication; occlusal appliances ; physical therapy modalities, mobilization, and exercises or the surgical intervention
