Abstract

The authors describe 3 cases of mouth-opening limitations and dyskinesia of the remaining mandibular movements, of different degrees of severity, arisen following a cicatricial retraction of the temporal muscle, caused by neurosurgical accesses to the underlying encephalic regions. Having kept in mind the afflictions that could cause an analogous symptomatology, the authors stop to consider which is the most suitable kind of treatment (surgical or rehabilitative) in these specific cases. For both kinds of treatment, corresponding to the specific indications, they propose techniques confirmed by their personal experiences.
