Characteristic bone profile of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) develops and grows up to late teenage years. [1] TMJ bone structures alter their morphology according to functional and pathological conditions throughout life. In this study, differences in TMJ skeletal morphology between children and young adults (aged between 20 and 24 years) were compared. [2] The results of this study show the changes of TMJ bony components during the period of maturity.
