Thursday February 10, 10:00 am ET
GOLDEN, Colo., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- TMJ Implants, Inc. and The Rocky Mountain TMJ Surgical Conference announced the launch of two new websites today. Both organizations are deeply involved in the advancement of global TMJ reconstructive surgery knowledge.
Alloplastic [manmade] implant solutions for failed TMJ patients are designed and fabricated by TMJ Implants, Inc. In addition, the company designs and manufactures prosthetic devices for use in patients with complex craniofacial problems. More information is available on the corporate website located at http://www.tmj.com.
Robert W. Christensen, DDS, FAIMBE [President, TMJ Implants, Inc.] is quoted as saying, "There are literally millions of Americans who are suffering from various forms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disease problems. Some of those require surgical restoration as a partial joint reconstruction and others require a total TMJ reconstruction. In the past 44 years some 27,000 Christensen TMJ devices have been implanted to help these people live more normal lives."
Some of the patients described by Dr. Christensen are either born without the back part of their lower jaw, or they suffer some trauma or other joint problem where TMJ Implants, Inc.'s customized devices may have to rebuild the entire lower jaw, the cheek bone(s), and base of the skull to make these patients receive normal jaw function, esthetics, and reduction in pain. TMJ Implants, Inc., working with oral and maxillofacial surgeons around the world, has been the recognized leader in TMJ reconstructive surgery.
The companion website, http://www.tmjournal.com , is provided as a knowledge clearinghouse by The Rocky Mountain TMJ Surgical Conference (RMTMJSC). The multimedia knowledge center is available to both healthcare professionals and the general public. Topics offered range from surgical techniques to unusual cases, and the site contains a Professional Education Series for oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
Jerry V. Dollar, MBA, FACHE [Executive Secretary, RMTMJSC] states, "We have been able to reach over 82,000 healthcare professionals, in over 140 countries, over the past year with our peer-reviewed e-magazine, The TMJournal. Now we look forward to serving the needs of an even broader audience with this new easy-to-use, highly informative web presence."
The two websites are expected to draw over ten million hits combined during calendar year 2005. Plans are already underway to enhance functionality and ease of use to further meet the mission of scientific and credible information on TMJ reconstruction.
