The study evaluated the frequency of noise, pain and alterations of mandibular movements in a group of 88 patients. Condylar position was also studied using OLTP X-ray images, and the presence of arthrotic lesions using multitomography. The condylar position was related to the presence of organic lesions at an articular level, and a higher frequency of the latter was found in anterior condylar displacements; the presence of condyles centered in the glenoid cavity on OLTP examination does not exclude the possibility of arthrotic lesions. Another important finding was the observation of a greater frequency of contralateral organic pathologies in posterior condylar displacements.
