Here at Health and Care we have a number of different dental models and mannequins useful for dental students and dental practices. Whether you are studying dentistry or teaching dentistry, dental models provide a multitude of uses. Often enlarged, dental models can show examples of dental problems, specific areas and different stages of growth.
Here is a selection of our most popular dental models:
The Adult Dentures Model is an ideal study model for dental students, showing exposed tooth roots, spongiosa, vessels, and nerves. Mounted on a base, the Adult Dentures Model includes 34 areas of study such as the nasal bone, superior maxilla, infraorbital foramen, nasal septum, facies of the eye, palatine bone and process, and mandible.
The Advanced Half Lower Jaw Model has 8 diseased teeth in model and consists of 19 parts. The front section of bone and all the teeth are removable from the half lower jaw, one incisor is longitudinally sectioned. Nerves, blood vessels, the sublingual and submandibular glands are shown.
The diseased teeth in this dental model show various stages of cavities from a small and easy-to-treat example on an incisor, through to advanced degradation of a molar, showing exposed root. Using this half lower jaw model it is simple to explain the necessity for good tooth care and demonstrate dental anatomy.
This Anatomical Dental Caries Model is composed of 7 parts, is 4 times larger than the life size (measuring 12x6x6 cm). The Anatomical Dental Caries Model consists of three teeth seated in their sockets, showing the progressive deterioration of tooth structure by dental caries. The first tooth shows the caries in the enamel. In the second tooth, the caries invade the dentine. Lastly, in the third tooth, the pathology affects the pulp, jeopardizing the vitality of the tooth.
For an inside look, the Anatomical Dental Pathology Model shows the process of dental caries in its progressive stages. The Dental Pathology Model shows the tissues forming the tooth (enamel, dentine and pulp) along with the way in which they are affected by the caries process. This Dental Pathology model is enlarged 4 times the life size, measuring 6x4cm, 5x11cm.
