These ankylosed retained teeth were not removed, as very limited residual bone would have remained for later implant installation.
Silicon and acrylic are easily available, economical, biocompatible and friendly to implant at resected ankylosed space.2,17 Silastic and acrylic were compared as interpositional materials in the treatment of TMJ ankylosis.
There is an increased degree of osteoblastic and osteoclastic activity with ankylosed teeth, as compared to normal teeth; and in favourable circumstances, the attachment of the affected tooth to the underlying tissues may be resolved and the tooth shed normally [Dixon, 1963; Thornton and Zimmerman, 1964].
Timing, preference of type of procedure and the policy of treatment vary from one center to another however, the main principles of management of TMJ ankylosis consist of resection of the ankylosed segment, use of interpositional material either alloplastic or allogeneic, and early, aggressive and tenacious postoperative physiotherapy.10
Digital palpation of the ankylosed temporomandibular joint during maximal movements demonstrates none or very limited translation of the condyle.14,15,16
The teeth may be brittle or even ankylosed to the surrounding bone, particularly when endodontic therapy has been previously carried out.

In terms of teeth mobility, it should be noticed that an increase in mobility may indicate attachment loss or pathological fracture due to extensive ERR or IRR, and a complete loss of physiological mobility may also indicate an ankylosed tooth (17).
It might be a workable option if it is ankylosed and cannot be transplanted or if it is undergoing external or internal root resorption or if its root is severely dilacerated or if the impaction is severe (e.g., the canine is lodged between the roots of the central and lateral incisors and orthodontic movement will jeopardize these teeth) or if the occlusion is acceptable, with the first premolar in the position of the canine and with an otherwise functional occlusion with well-aligned teeth or if there are pathologic changes (e.g., cystic formation, infection) or when the patient does not desire orthodontic treatment.5
