Anomalous Medical Celebrates 6 Years in Business
The temporomandibular joint is the most complex and misunderstood joint in the human body.
In the United States, there are more than 35 million people who suffer from a TMJ problem, according to the TMJ Association. That’s almost one-tenth of the U.S. population. Most of those suffering from TMD – about 90 percent – are women.
That’s why we set out six years ago to create an accurate moving jaw that could be distorted to help everyone understand the foundational issues that affect the TMJ. It was not an easy feat. It took years of research and development, working with some of the best TMJ experts to get the movements just right.
Today, we can proudly say we have the best fully-functioning 3D mandibular joint available. Our jaw translates along an anterior/posterior axis and hinges on a fixed axis in centric relation. You can show protrusion, retrusion and excursion with a few simple controls. You can also distort the bone and condyle-disk assemblies to compare and contrast normal and abnormal joint anatomy. It’s not only a great tool for patient education, but it can also help to illustrate complex cases to students and colleagues.
"I've been using Anomalous Medical since it came out. It has proven an indispensable tool for teaching and communicating, as it perfectly illustrates joint derangements and the according mandibular and occlusal shifting,” said Dr. Alain Alube. “With it I’ve helped patients, dentists, and university professors understand the true effects of the TM joints on a patient's occlusion and whole life."
