Chronic recurrent subluxation of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is known to have repeated episodes of joint dislocation, which are self-reducible in nature. Subluxation of TMJ accounts to multifactorial etiology. Accordingly, various treatment modalities have been postulated and performed to achieve functional outcomes for the patient. Conservative, surgical, and various treatment options have been discussed in the literature to correct the same. Glenotemporal osteotomy has been one such treatment modality to treat recurrent subluxation or dislocation of the jaws. This is a case report on a recurrent subluxating condyle treated by glenotemporal osteotomy with interpositional bone graft from the symphysis region.
