NMD (Neuromuscular Dentistry) Courses at ICPRI

While conventional dentistry deals with an evaluation of teeth, gums and bones, they are often inadequate to deal with the nuances of temporomandibular joint and other related disorders. Neuromuscular Dentistry (NMD) is a field of dentistry which deals with muscles and nerves that help in the positioning and movement of jaws and jaw joints.
NMD is a holistic approach towards treatment of temporomandibular disorders without involving surgical procedures. They involve the reprogramming the muscles of mastication and helps with the treatment of sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnoea. 

The decision to learn NMD (Neuromuscular Dentistry) course would enable a dentist to widen his scope of work to efficient correction of misalignments in jaws, nerves, muscles, joints and teeth. It helps in dealing with temporomandibular disorders more effectively. This is achieved by NMD with a thorough evaluation of the relationship between TMJ, nerves and muscles.
Scope of NMD
NMD offers a permanent solution for pains and discomforts caused due to TMD and bite issues, which cannot be treated effectively with conventional dentistry. The other benefits of the field include the following: -
  • Use of Ultra Low Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (ULF-TENS) for the relief from pain or muscle spasms caused due to TMD.
  • Use of orthotic to stabilise the alignment of jaws.
  • Use of permanent bite stabilisation methods like Coronoplasty, Removable Overlay Partials, advanced orthodontics and so on.
