Hyaluronic acid is one of the components of synovial fluid. According to what is already well known in national and international biomedical literature, hyaluronic acid in the context of the TMJ serves two important biomechanical tasks. The first is feeding the articular cartilage; the second is lubricating the components of the joint. These two functions served by the same element change each other according to the continuous alternation of values of pressure in the articular cavity. The authors propose to overcome this statement by demonstrating that hyaluronic acid plays a third function in the TMJ, which is the biomechanical function of stabilizing the articular components.
