What is it?
The NTI Plus is a small, simple device that fits securely and comfortably on your upper or lower two front teeth while you sleep.
Do you Suffer From:
- Migraine Headaches?
- Stress or Tension Headaches?
If you’re one of the 40 million Americans who suffer from migraine headaches, it’s possible that you may find some relief from your pain in the dental chair.
When stress and tension cause people to clench their jaws, the result can be severe pain in their head, neck and shoulders. Dentists have discovered that a small plastic device worn over the two front teeth can break the cycle of stress-induced jaw clenching.
The device is called an NTI-Tension Suppression System. The FDA has approved its use for the treatment of headaches. After your dentist fits the NTI to your teeth, you wear it at night to help reduce the intense muscle contractions of your scalp and jaw that can cause migraines and jaw pain.
You’re Not Alone
- 23 Million Americans suffer from migraine pain.
- 44 Million Americans suffer from chronic clenching and grinding resulting in tooth damage.
How does it work?
Wearing the NTI Plus keeps the back teeth from meeting which prevents jaw-clenching, the intense muscle contractions of the scalp and jaw that migraine and chronic headache sufferers experience during sleep. This intense muscle activity usually occurs without the sufferer’s knowledge, and has been linked to increased severity and frequency of headache and migraine pain.
Wearing the NTI Plus also helps protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding and clenching … an activity that can wear your teeth down or cause chips and cracks.
What is it made of?
The NTI Plus is made of a safe, clear, hard thermoplastic material. It’s non-porous so it won’t stain or absorb odors. It’s non-allergenic. And easy to care for … simply brush it with your toothbrush and water each time you remove it. And you can’t even see it!
Will my insurance cover this?
Usually most people have coverage for TMJ or TMD or Bruxism or Grinding/Clenching. That would be what the diagnosis is. We can check both your dental and medical insurance for details on coverage.
The device is called an NTI-Tension Suppression System, and is approved by the FDA.
What Dr. Mason’s Patients Have to Say about the NTI Plus
“I used to get headaches everyday (some small ones and some really big, unbearable ones) but since using the NTI I get about one small, controllable headache a week. It is great to not have headaches everyday and it is especially great not be be taking overpriced prescription medicines to help the headaches I do get!”
– Julie Hair
“My NTI provided a total health life-style change. Ten years of medication, acupuncture and surgery the NTI provided complete relief within 30 days.”
– Ron Edwards
“I was getting three, four and sometimes five headaches per week. Some were so bad that I would have to miss work or any plans I had made. Since I started using my NTI, I get maybe one headache per month and I even sleep so much better. It has completely changed my life.”
