Let's talk headaches!
Do you suffer from headaches, sore jaw muscles or teeth, receding gums, abfractions (ditching of the tooth by the gum line) and clenching or grinding (bruxism)? There must be dozens of appliances to use for these symptoms. I have found the NTI appliance-my favorite for treating all of these. Why? Because it is fairly simple and it works. Most appliances are bulky/big and are uncomfortable to wear. The NTI appliance snaps on your lower or upper front teeth only. It works because it doesn't allow your back teeth to touch. This shuts down a lot of the muscle activity of the big chewing muscles and decreases sensory input to the trigeminal nerve complex, thus reducing headaches and muscle tightness/pain in most patients. I wear one and most of my staff do as well. If you have any of these symptoms please give us a call!
