Many people suffer from headaches as a result of bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. The added stress and strain on the jaw and facial muscles result in headaches that can cause a significant amount of pain and can interfere with your day-to-day life.
Among our solutions for migraines is the NTI (Nocioceptive Trigeminal Inhibition) appliance, which helps reduce pressure and prevents you from clenching your jaws while asleep. Developed in response to research that indicates the majority of migraine patients clench their jaws while sleeping, the NTI appliance is custom-made to fit on the lower two front teeth or the upper two front teeth. By reducing pressure on the sensitive trigeminal nerve, the NTI device can greatly reduce or even eliminate the symptoms of migraines and the need for medication. If our experienced dentist, Dr. Zabner, determines that the NTI appliance is the best treatment option for you, it can be custom-made for you right in our dental office.
