Many chronic headaches and migraines are caused by involuntary night-time teeth clenching. This leads to hyperactivity of the trigeminal nerve, which can trigger migraine and tension headaches. Tension headaches are usually felt on the sides of your head as pain or pressure, as tightness around your forehead that may feel like a “vise grip,” an aching pain at your temples or the back of your head and neck.
The NTI Tension Suppression System is a small removable plastic resin custom device which is worn over the front teeth at night to prevent contact of the posterior teeth.
The NTI can be used to treat:
Tension-type headache pain
Jaw disorders (TMD)
Bruxism (teeth grinding)
