TMJ Disk and Mandible Function

Anomalous Medical is the only 3D anatomy simulation program to show a 3D TMJ disk and mandible functioning accurately during translation. The TMJ simulation was created in parternership with Dr. Mark Piper, DMD, MD, to further understanding into how the TMJ and mandible function. The protrusion sequence in the video is one of several movement sequences available with the Dental Simulations.

Dr. Piper has used Anomalous Medical 3D anatomy and Dental Simulations extensively at the Piper Clinic during patient consultations to help explain the anatomy and how defects and deformities in the disks, condyles and mandible can lead to malocclusion, i.e. bad bite.
