This kitten was presented to the surgeons at AVS in Orlando. It could not open its mouth past a few milimeters. CT showed TMJ ankylosis and a condylectomy was performed. Upon healing mandibular assymetry resulted in trauma from the the mandibular canine teeth to the palate and the gingiva adjacent to the right maxillary canine. Crown reduction sparing entry into the pulp chamber provided this kitten with a comfortable bite. The success of the reduction will be evaluated radiographically in six months.
