3D Views of the TMJ #3 - Mandibular Motions

The third in the series of more detailed 3D views of the TMJ is "Mandibular Motions".

In this animation we show three views of the jaw simultaneously:

  • From above/behind
  • From below/infront
  • From the side


The jaw goes through its different motions:

  • Rotation Only (above)
  • Rotation + Translation
  • Protrusive Excursion
  • Left and Right Lateral Excursions

Probably most useful for introducing dental students to the motions of the mandible, you may find this animation helpful in clarifying the motions to particularly inquisitive patients!

We are most grateful to Dr. Drew Cobb, Director of the Core Curriculum at The Dawson Academy, for his help in creating these animations. First we are thankful for his patience as it's taken over two years to put this set together, and secondly for his time as he's joined our animation team on several video conferences to review and refine what we've produced.
