NTI ApplianceGladstone, MO
The NTI Suppression System is a small removable plastic resin appliance custom fitted by Dr. Dale or Dr. Platt and is worn over the front teeth at night to prevent contact of the posterior teeth. For NTI-tss, it is key that the molars and canines do not touch anything in order to sufficiently reduce jaw clenching.
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 can be used to treat:
- Migraine pain
- Tension-type headache pain
- Jaw disorders (TMD)
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
