In brief: Yes
Yes. Non invasive.
No harm trying. Helps mostly as an adjunct to comprehensive TMJ treatment.

In brief: Tens and TMD
The answer to this questions is maybe.
It really depends what kind of tens unit you have ? You need tens that delivers controlled, periodic, bilateral electrical stimulation to help provide muscle relaxation, increased blood circulation and increased range of motion. You also need to have it placed in the right area. You should also be under dental supervision.

I have no experience with this.
I am uncertain since the pads are so large. You have to wear it across the face.
