Abstract 
Temporomandibular joint dislocations that persist for more than a month are labelled as long-standing or chronic temporomandibular joint dislocations, and are the most challenging and difficult to treat. No definite guidelines have been laid down for the management of such dislocations in the literature. This paper reports 5 such cases and recommends an algorithm for the management of long-standing temporomandibular joint dislocations.

Key words: Dislocations, Surgical procedures, operative, Temporomandibular joint, Wounds and injuries
