“What can a DENTIST do for my headaches?”
A NTI device (short for Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System) can be made for patients who suffer from jaw and headache pain as a result of TMJ dysfunction. Clenching your teeth while sleeping and during the day can cause the muscles in your face to tense up, resulting in morning pain and tension headaches, and can even damage surrounding joints, teeth and other muscles. This small, comfortable plastic device fits over your top two front teeth and makes clenching virtually impossible. You only wear your NTI while you sleep at night. Contact our office today if you experience these symptoms and find out if the NTI is right for you!
