The TENS Unit has been used successfully for many years in the symptomatic relief of chronic pain. TENS relieves pain by sending small, electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin. TENS is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free, medically-proven method of pain management. This comprehensive instrument for precise occlusal evaluation assists in making diagnostic and treatment decisions in aesthetic, orthodontics, TMD, and denture cases.

Neuromuscular Dentistry is the science of dentistry that embodies accepted scientific principles of patho-physiology, anatomy, form and function. NMD objectively evaluates the complex relationship between teeth, temporomandibular joints and the masticatory muscles in order to achieve an occlusion that is based on the optimal relationship between the mandible and the skull Neuromuscular Occlusion. The goal of the Neuromuscular Dentist is to relax the muscles controlling jaw position to establish a true physiological rest position upon which treatment considerations are based.

In summary, NMD is the science of occlusion encompassing not only the teeth, but the objective evaluation of the status and function of the jaw muscles and joints before, during and after treatment to achieve the optimal result.
