NTI Headache, Migraine And Tooth Grinding Treatment by a New York Dentist
If you thought a headache was a nuisance you will find a migraine can really affect your life in a negative way. The throbbing pain along with the sensitivity to light and nausea can make your daily activities such as caring for your family, working or driving your car an impossible task.
Prescription drugs are the remedy most people resort to when they come across such problems without realizing that these medications have side effects and are therefore, not the best solution for most. Most medications end up only treating the symptoms and never the cause. This leaves most people feeling hopeless.
At Whittaker Road Dental, we have an effective treatment which does not require the use of any drugs. It is called an NTI TSS plus which is a tiny oral appliance that can deliver large results.
What Is The Cause of A Migraine?
It is common for people who suffer from migraines to grind their teeth and clench their jaws. This is a typical occurrence when the individual is sleeping, and therefore, they are not aware that they are even doing it.
How Does This Affect You?
- The grinding and clenching aggravate the trigeminal nerve which is a facial nerve affecting four areas, which are namely the eyes, forehead, the upper and the lower jaw.
- The nerve becomes over stimulated causing the migraine and other types of chronic discomfort due to the stress it causes.
How Can NTI Elevate The Pain?
NTI TSS Stands for Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System. If you feel the definition of the term is a mouthful you certainly won’t be saying the same about the device. This is a tiny custom molded acrylic that fits between your front teeth comfortably.
The NTI prevents your teeth from coming together and your gel muscles from engaging as you bite down. NTI allows the nerve in your face to relax and return to its normal function.
The FDA has approved this device as an effective treatment for migraines, and this is available in our office. We can custom fit this device for you and help you to get the relief you need from migraines.
If you are experiencing jaw pain and headaches, the NTI may be a great solution for you. An exam of your jaw and a consultation will let us know if the NTI is a solution.
