Customized Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Prosthesis

 

After the head tomography taken with the appropriate protocol is delivered to us, a 3-dimensional patient model is created together with the surgeon to decide on the design of the prosthesis customized for the patient; the components of the joint prosthesis are designed in parallel with the lines decided over this model. Designs are steered with the analyses of direct loads, tensions and fatigue that might occur on the joint during the usage. The neck design and screw positions of the implant, where load accumulation especially occurs are made separately with the permission of the surgeon by out experienced engineers.

Customized Partial Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Prosthesis

 

Perfect fit into the fossa, biocompatible titanium (Ti‐6AI‐4V) material

We can list the advantages of Customized Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Prosthesis over standard prostheses as follows:

 

  • They are more compatible with the bone, thus there is less probability of displacement and breaking.

  • They have a long lifetime.

  • They can be attached in short surgery durations (patients stays shorter under anesthesia).

  • They have lower morbidity (rareness of the health problems to be encountered post-operation).

  • They are implanted with less damage to the existing bone tissue.
