One of the important elements in the treatment of TMJ diseases is a functional relaxation technique. We will put you in a special room and glue impulses to your face and neck to help you relax. You will rest for 1.5 hours or until your muscles are completely relaxed. We need this in order to find your correct bite and order your personal device.
