A difference you, and your patients, can feel.
The true value of custom-made.
Before they reach your door, many patients suffering from TMJ disorders endure long, complex treatments and several surgical procedures resulting in significant bone loss and distortion to the normal anatomical features.
Our TMJ Concepts patient-specific implants are designed to allow for precision fit to these discrepant features. Designed to provide rigid fixation and precision fit, TMJ Concepts implants help you restore form and function to your patients.
of surgeons who perform TMJ replacement surgeries, use patient-specific TMJ devices.1
Value of patient specific implants.
Versatile design options - Implants are uniquely designed, providing flexibility in the placement of bone fixation, occlusal correction and condyle placement.
Allowing for an easier fit - Altered anatomy and increased scar tissue formation may result in difficult fit for off-the-shelf implants.
"Using an implant that’s custom designed to patient anatomy – of which no two are alike – reduces the periop re-shaping I have to do and ultimately leads to a better fit." 3
