Aim: To evaluate the efficacy, safety, and stability of TMJ autologous blood injection for the treatment of recurrent TMJ dislocation in an effort to standardize the procedure and compare it with the conservative management. Materials and Methods: Twenty patients diagnosed with chronic recurrent TMJ dislocation (complete/incomplete) were treated by conservative method, and five patients who did not respond to conservative therapy were treated by injections of autologous blood into the upper joint space and around the TMJ capsules. Statistical Analysis Used: Statistical analysis of collected data was done using SPSS version 23. The values were evaluated statistically with t-test and Kruskal–Wallis test for descriptive, intergroup, and intragroup comparison. Results: Hundred percent of successful outcome and required no further treatment at their 3-month follow-up in autologous blood injection. Conclusion: This procedure has proven to be safe, simple, and cost-effective for the treatment of chronic recurrent TMJ dislocation.
