TENS Muscle Relaxation
The TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a device used in the evaluation and diagnosis of malocclusion.
The TENS unit electronically massages the muscles of the head and neck. It also stimulates the jaw with low frequency pulses to help the muscle find its most relaxed state.
The massaging action of this stimulus releases the buildup of lactic acid in your muscles, allowing your muscles to feel totally relaxed. Only with this level of muscle relaxation can Dr. Winans find your perfect bite.
