Abstract

We treated a case of chronic bilateral dislocation of the mandibular condyle that had been present for nineteen months.
The patient was treated conservatively by lever action using intraoral resin plates with built-up heels and by extraoral traction.
Although long-duration cases are commonly treated by open reduction, our method is useful for cases of edentulous.
