Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation in the symptomatic relief of pain in temporomandibular disorders. Materials & Methods: Twenty patients received TENS therapy and VAS was used to measure changes in pain during and after therapy. Also changes in mouth opening were recorded and analyzed. Results: A significant improvement was observed regarding orofacial pain, muscles and TMJs tenderness and interincisal distance.
