Several small randomized controlled trials in adults and children report pain reduction or reduced need for pain medications during dental procedures with the use of various TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) techniques. These studies provide promising preliminary evidence but do not include clear descriptions of design or results. Therefore, better research is necessary before a strong recommendation can be made.
