AUTHOR(S): Dr. Namrata Dogra, Dr. MS Sidhu and Dr. Seema Grover
ABSTRACT:Pain occurring during different stages of Orthodontic treatment has been well defined in the literature. Many techniques have been used to manage orthodontic pain including both pharmacological and non-pharmacological means. One of the non- pharmacological means for pain management is TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) which has been widely used but its application in orthodontics has been poorly described. Only three studies have been retrieved upon a PubMed search. These clinical studies are presented in a chronological order in present review. TENS application can become an affluent option in treatment of orthodontic pain.
