Enroll in The Right Bite Institute of Airway Dentistry and Ignite Your Neuromuscular Dentistry Journey

Neuromuscular dentistry (NMD) is all about the science of creating a harmonious atmosphere among the muscles of mastication, the temporomandibular joint, the airway, and the teeth so that neither compensation nor compromise happens in any of the above constituents of the stomatognathic system. It enables the dentist to master bio-metrics (measurement) and hence practice precision dentistry keeping the general well-being of the patient in mind.

 Airodontics: The Right Bite Protocol *, conceptualized by Dr. Raj (one of the pioneers in NMD protocols) has tied up with ICCMO (International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics) to teach NMD and its protocols with help from his team that includes Dr. Girish. P.V. (the premier NM orthodontist in India), Dr. Abhimanyu Chaturvedi (Tongue Tie Specialist), and Dr. Ankit Saha (Radiologist with expertise in TMD and Sleep Disorders). The Right Bite Institute of Airodontics conducts fellowship courses in collaboration with ICCMO, the global advocate for Neuromuscular Dentistry. This science was brought to India under the leadership of Dr. Raj by officially opening ICCMO’s chapter in India on 31st March 2017.

 NMD, as per Airodontics R*, is divided into Addition NMD, Reduction NMD, Sleep Dentistry, Myofunctional Therapy and Cervical Physiology to help teach, learn, and practice the science better. It is based on the Muscle Physiology in Occlusion and Biometrics concepts of Dr. Bernard Jankelson. The courses have been designed in such a way so that a participant can start by understanding the basics and then go on to completing the fellowship with case presentation within 2 years (Cluster 1), and then following it up with Phase 2 NMD and Advanced NMD with ICCMO’s Mastership programs (Cluster 2 & 3).


Neuromuscular Dentistry (NMD) taught the way it needs to be. Step by step.

 The Right Bite CPCTM under the aegis of ICCMO (International College of Cranio Mandibular Orthopedics) brings to India the complete solution of NMD to treat TMD (Temporo Mandibular Joint Disorders) and OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea). Learn it the perfect way from Dr. Rajesh Raveendranathan BDS MICCMO PhD and his team.

CLUSTER 1 is an introduction to NeuroMuscular Dentistry and Sleep Dentistry (Online) that is panned over 6 weeks with INTERNATIONAL guest lectures as well. Neuromuscular dentistry (NMD) is all about the science of creating a harmonious atmosphere among the muscles of mastication, the temporomandibular joints, and the teeth so that neither compensation nor compromise happens in any of the above three constituents of the stomatognathic triad. 90% of all TMD is myelogenous and hence should be treated holistically rather than going under the scalpel. NMD is the holistic approach. By creating the Myocentric position for the mandible, the teeth are then brought into that occlusion, hence reprogramming the muscles of mastication. This is done using state-of-the-art and sophisticated, yet, easy to use, equipment.


NMD will also help us grasp the science of the silent killer, Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), and how a dental surgeon can help a patient control it. Hundreds of millions of people of all ages around the world suffer from deadly obstructive sleep apnoea. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) has been linked to Cardiovascular Disease, Cerebrovascular problems, Endocrine Disorders, and Obesity. Our medical colleagues are asking for our help, NOW! OSA is considered a disease of craniofacial anatomy so the ONUS is on dentists to identify and help manage OSA sufferers.


The concept of Addition NMD and Reduction NMD will be covered online in MODULE 1.


MODULE 2 will include hands-on training in bite registration techniques and micro-occlusal corrections. Module 2 is offline and starts with Addition NMD where the participant learns to register the J5 ULF TENS bite for a Neuromuscular orthotic. This is followed by a Micro-occlusion Demo on Orthotic with Hands-on and Mandibular Kinesiolography. This module then goes on to cover Reduction NMD where the participant learns to incorporate the J5 ULF TENS to enhance the Gnathology of the patient’s occlusion using the T-Scan/Occlusense.


Reduction NMD protocol – ULF TENS Gnathologic Micro-Occlusion is a precise and measured T- Scan-Occlusense/EMG-guided occlusal adjustment process that is a proven, fast-acting, and highly efficacious treatment for muscular TMD symptoms that are commonly experienced by many TMD patients. Our protocol involves the use of the ULF TENS as well. The advantage of using the J5 to the Reduction NMD protocol is that you reduce the number of visits to the doc as the required myo-trajectory is achieved on day 1 itself. In these workshops, you will learn:


  • Occlusion and disclusion’s role in TMD

  • Treating TMD patients without orthotics when the required VD is less than the current VD

  • The concepts, technology, and research behind gnathology

  • How the ULF TENS increases the effectiveness of Reduction of NMD

  • Evaluation of cases and videos

  • How gnathology can help you in everyday cases


Join our experienced clinicians in this one-day workshop to get hands-on experience with the J5 ULF TENS T-Scan/Occlusense with patients.


Mandibular Kinesiography - Once you feel confident in successfully treating TMD cases with the ULF TENS; it is time to get to the advanced level of NMD. Here you learn how to utilize the K7 for recording diagnostic data, interpreting the data, and taking a bite registration with more precision. It would start with a lecture covering how to properly prepare the patient for a Neuromuscular K7 bite registration workup, which includes cleaning the skin, positioning the electrodes for EMGs, placement of the magnet, and alignment of the K7 Sensor Array. The theory and science behind each Scan, how to properly record each Scan, the options available for each Scan, and how the Scans provide you with a diagnostic picture of the patients will all be taught. After this, there would be a DEMONSTRATION to make sure the participant understands and records each pre-TENS Scan correctly. After this would be a class on how to take a bite registration utilizing the K7/JT and J5.


Module 3 is online with two sessions on the importance of Fascia & Frena and the role of Myofunctinal Therapy in Neuromuscular Dentistry. Participants are required to complete their assigned cases by completing Obsereveship hours with Right Bite under their assigned instructors. All are in-house programs in Delhi/Bangalore/ Mumbai or Kolkata and are conducted as per the availability of the patients and the participants.


Module 4 is offline and majorly involves case finishing. This module also involves Demo on Axiography and the cluster is completed with Case and Assignments Presentations before final submissions to ICCMO for awarding the Fellowship.


We, at The Right Bite, believe in absolute learning; so once you’ve left our courses you should be confident in treating the different kinds of patients that we deal with day in and day-out. A theoretical knowledge of the science is wonderful but a practical know-how from observing the patient, to history taking and treatment to follow-up, both physically and physiologically is more important to ensure treatment success.


This course enables you to understand and grasp all of this by observing Dr. Raj and his team work magic with patients. The team will guide you to be able to successfully present the 3 cases required for acquiring the Fellowship status from ICCMO over 1 year. The patient cases would be in-house at any one of The Right Bite centers in Bengaluru / Delhi / Mumbai / Kolkata. The schedule will be as per both the participant's and team’s availability.


The participant will also be taught how to use the newer concepts in NMD and Biometrics. The hands-on part of the course will focus more on the treatment aspect of the K7 and reiterate how to take a proper bite registration. You will again work to record both pre and post-TENS Scans to further their knowledge of the K7 and each of the Scans. Time will be devoted to reviewing the patient data that was recorded, providing insights into how and why the Scans are recorded along with the interpretation of each Scan individually and as a whole.


Cluster 2 - All the patients, once they are pain-free, need to be given the option for either lifetime wear of the orthotic or complete the case in the new occlusion with either a prosthodontic build-up or with NM orthodontics.


Cluster 3 - Once you clear that, you can apply for the ICCMO Mastership, where you need to submit a research thesis. To avoid future relapse, the dentist should be confident with Cluster 3. Looking forward to creating an NM specialist in you.
