Baseline Clinical and Radiographic Features Are Associated with Long-term (8 years) Signs

Baseline clinical and radiographic features are associated with long-term (8 years) signs: symptoms for subjects with diseased temporomandibular joint.

A recent study determined the extent to which baseline clinical and radiographic features were associated with long-term outcomes in patients with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD).
