In the conservative treatment of TMDs, understanding the ability of the masticatory muscles to generate appropriately symmetric bite forces and consequently relax properly is crucial. Senstension sensors can be placed on the masticatory muscles to obtain relevant information in order to develop an optimized treatment plan. Even more so, Senstension can be used as a biofeedback system during exercise therapy. Furthermore, understanding the interaction between neck musculature and masticatory muscles is essential in those patients who have developed compensatory muscle activation in kinetic chains and unhealthy postural habits. With the ability to use several Senstension sensors simultaneously, kinetic chains can be investigated and acted on appropriately by correcting weak links in the chain. Lastly, the effects of occlusal corrections on masticatory muscle function can be investigated providing new insights in conservative treatment. Senstension sensors provide information about bite force generation extra-orally, without any disturbing factors in the mouth, thus bite force generation can be investigated from initial tooth contact through to complete occlusion.
