12

What separates the temporal fossa from the infratemporal fossa?

Infratemporal crest

13

Thickened portion of the joint capsule to prevent posterior and inferior dislocation of the joint.

14

Biconcave disc of dense fibrous tissue between condyle and mandibular fossa

Articular disc of the TMJ

15

What is the relationship of the sphenomandibular ligament with the TMJ?

Medial to TMJ

16

Primary passive support of the mandible (tonus of muscles of mastication usually bear weight of mandible)

Sphenomandibular ligament

17

Anatomical variations of the attachment of the Sphenomandibular ligament to the lingula of the mandible can result in poor anesthesia to the ...

inferior alveolar nerve

18

What is the retrodiscal pad/tissue located between?

articular disc and the posterior osseous structures

19

What is the movement of the upper compartment of the articular disc of the TMJ?

Translatory movement (gliding) = protrusion and retrusion

20

What is the movement of the lower compartment of the articular disc of the TMJ?

Hinge movement = elevation and depression
