Young females with retruded and hyperdivergent mandibles, class II openbite malocclusions, and steep occlusal planes with or without TMJ symptoms are at higher risk for Idiopathic Condylar Resorption (ICR). Such patients undergoing orthodontic and /or surgical treatment should be informed of possible relapse due to ICR. Orthognathic Surgery with Total joint replacement or Orthognathic surgery alone may both be acceptable options for management of the facial deformity and the malocclusion that ensues from ICR. Proper patient selection is key to achieving a successful outcome. Current trends and the evidence in the literature suggest that orthognathic surgery with alloplastic joint replacement may be the preferred approach. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Inc.
