Adaptation of the Temporomandibular Joint to Altered Mandibular Function

Johnson/Brand/Young/Duncanson, Jr.


PMID: 8595102

Monitoring data indicate that activity was suppressed and nutritional intake was reduced. Histologic evaluation of the 2-, 4-, 7-, and 59 day test specimens detected only a monocytic infiltrate response in the 4-day group.
