In this human skull model the muscles of mastication (masseter, temporal, medial and lateral pterygoid muscles) are represented as elastic bands. This skull model is suited to demonstrate the function of the masticator muscles with jaw occlusion, the initial stage of jaw opening and the movements of the mandible to the side and front. The skullcap is removable. This is a high quality cast made of hard unbreakable plastic, with highly accurate representation of fissures, foramina, processes, sutures, and more. The anatomy of the human skull is displayed in a very distinct way with this TMJ Skull.
Made in Germany by American 3B Scientific, this model weighs 1.54 lbs.
