The patient was diagnosed as bilateral temporomandibular joints arthrosis with mandibular prognathism.<BR>Although occlusal treatment with bite splint was effective to some extent, intermittent trismus did not disappear, so bilateral sagittal splitting ramus osteotomy was performed to correct his dental malocclusion.<BR>Postoperative course was not eventful and his range of mouth opening increased to 35mm between incisal edges of maxillary and mandibular central incisor.
