Temporomandibular disorders are diseases causing pain and dysfunction in joints and muscles controlling mandibular movements. Their etiology is multifactorial and multidisciplinary approaches are needed to reach a differential diagnosis and an adequate management plan. This case report proposes a management protocol, with monthly sodium hyaluronate infiltrations, with different molecular weights, to control such changes and promote improvement of temporomandibular joint biomechanics and pain.
