  2. Yes i was thinking the same. Standard textbook nilima says that the deviarion of mandible is seen in the affected side so the fulness is in affected side and flatness is in normal side.
    But i also think u/l tmj ankylosis isnt associated with multiple carious teeth.
    So what would be the correct answer?
