The Right Bite "Learn NMD" Course 2 - Module 1

February 18 – 19, 2017
Cochin, India

Course 2 is a two day hands-on course enabling you to register the TENS bite and make micro-occlusion adjustments on the resultant orthotic with the T-Scan.

Neuromuscular Dentistry (NMD) taught the way it needs to be. Step by step. The Right Bite - ICPRI (Indra Craniofacial Pain Relief India LLP) under the aegis of ICCMO (International College of Cranio Mandibular Orthopedics) brings to India the complete solution of NMD to treat TMJD (Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorders) and OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea). Learn it the perfect way from Dr. Rajesh Raveendranathan (BDS, MICCMO).

Covered over 2 modules of 2 days each, this course teaches you how to diagnose TMD and OSA, record the bite using a J5 ULF TENS device, construct an orthotic (both acrylic and acetyl resin) and adjust the orthotic using the T-Scan™ (by Tekscan with the able support of our NMD specialists Dr. Vikas Agarwal, Dr. Prafulla Thumathi and Dr. Tatu Joy). All that you need to know to set up your TMJ practice. During the second module there will also be a sneak preview on how the K7 helps and confirms the efficacy of NMD. At the end of the second module, every participant will be awarded the ‘The Right Bite – ICPRI - ICCMO Course2 certification.
