Further comments on the paper

Comments: This retrospective study aims to investigate the effect of splint combined with PRP injection in the treatment of temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJ-OA). The study holds significance as temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis is the most serious type of temporomandibular disorder (TMD). The article successfully proposes the idea of a new treatment in combination with basic research, hoping to provide a new theory for conservative treatment of the temporomandibular joint.
